  • This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Ahu Akahanga, Hanga Roa, Easter Island Chile

    Located in the middle of the largest coast of Easter Island, the place would be the tomb of the first sovereign of the island. Never restored, it testifies to the abandonment of the cult of the Moai and allows a good understanding of the territorial arrangement typical of Neolithic villages.


    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Ahu Vinapu, Easter Island Chile

    Another essential place in your visit to Easter Island, the Ahu Vinapu has an extraordinary finish. It is here that the theories of the Amerindian settlement were, wrongly, reinforced. To appreciate the work of the stone.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Rano Kau, Easter Island Chile

    Here too, one of the most beautiful panoramas of Rapa Nui. The large crater of the extinct volcano and its indentation on the vastness of the South Pacific reminds us of the geographic isolation of Easter Island.



    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Orongo, Easter Island Chile

    Tangata Manu, the cult of the Bird Man. The ceremonial village of Orongo, repeatedly restored, was built on the side of a cliff, facing the islets that shelter the seabirds that come to lay eggs there during the southern spring. The quest for the first egg designated the religious authority of the year.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Ahu Huri a Urenga, Pia Taro, Easter Island Chile

    Restored archaeological site consisting of a single platform with also a single Moai, unique in its kind: it has 4 hands. Much more than this simple singularity, the altar is, there too, oriented astronomically.


    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Puna Pau, Hanga Roa, Easter Island Chile

    Rapa Nui's other career, that of hats or hairstyles and siding. The gigantism of the statues was no longer sufficient on its own: the red stone was then used for the sake of aesthetics. Superb panoramic view over the bay of Hanga Roa.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Ahu Akivi, Easter Island Chile

    Somewhat out of the village, well inland (its specificity), the restored platform accommodates 7 Moai who seem to be looking towards the sea. But then again, its astronomical orientation is very particular. Landscapes and colors are different from the rest of Rapa Nui.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Anakena Beach, Easter Island Chile

    On the other side of the island, opposite the only village, the white sandy beach of Rapa Nui: Anakena. This is where the first Polynesian settlers arrived. An idyllic place, worthy of the most beautiful postcards, bathed in translucent waters and sheltered in the only coconut grove of Easter Island. Here, too, the site has been completely restored, and its Moai are the best preserved that we can still admire today.


    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Ahu Te Pito Kura, Easter Island Chile

    Continuing between Anakena beach and the Poike peninsula in the North East, you will discover the largest Moai which was raised on its altar. Knocked down in the 19th century and broken in two, it bears witness to the gigantism of this astonishing megalithic civilization. Next to the platform, a stone with magnetic anomalies seems to protect the giant stone.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Papa Vaka, Camino Vaitea Anakena, Easter Island Chile

    Shortly after, we stop on a basalt outcrop that houses petroglyphs, the other great expression of the Neolithic civilization of Easter Island. Concentrated on fishery resources, these representations remind us of the importance of the marine universe, an essential component of the Rapa Nui environment.


    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Pu o Hiro, Hanga Roa, Easter Island Chile

    A stop of a few minutes to appreciate the aerophone stone.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Rano Raraku, Easter Island Chile

    Almost all the stone giants of Easter Island have been carved here. The Moai quarry is the site that most fascinates visitors. Hundreds of statues are still there and continue to captivate tourists from around the world who wander among them.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Ahu Tongariki, Easter Island Chile

    Then we will arrive at one of the architectural gems of Polynesia: the Ahu Tongariki. It is the most important and undoubtedly the most remarkable restored site on the island. 15 Moai, these monoliths that have made Easter Island world famous, face visitors. Supposed to be astronomical, the sunrises give the place a special atmosphere.
