Anna's review for another G Adventures tour
5 - Excellent
“Waterfalls, Geo-thermal baths, glaciers, lagoons, geysirs and glaciers. Iceland is a nature-lover's paradise. Very happy with the tour and highly recommend anyone to visit Iceland!”
Review for another G Adventures tour
5 - Excellent
“Physically not easy at times (quite a bit of hiking and walking around with your backpack in the heat, and comfort levels are quite low both in overnight trains and hotels) but definitely rewarding. Would definitely recommend it to others.”

Rapa Nui, located at the easternmost vertex of the Polynesian triangle in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, lies 3,700km (2,299 mi) from the Chilean coast and 4,000km (2,485 mi) from French Polynesia. The island has an area of 16,600 ha and enjoys a subtropical climate with minimum temperatures of 16°C and a maximum of 28°C. The island was created as a result of underwater volcanic eruptions some 3 million years ago.

Meal

Included Activity
  • Moai Route Tour
    Enjoy a full-day tour along the Moai route. Start the tour with a visit to Vaihu, a place surrounded by enormous statues that have toppled face down. Next, stop at the ruins of Akahanga. Still in their original condition, they are the location where the first king of the island was buried.

    See the Rano Raraku volcano located further along, close to the southern shore of the island. At the base of Poike, the most spectacular crater in the zone, former islanders carved giant statues from the volcano’s quarry — they are 20m (65t) long and just under 200 tons.

    Carry on toward the beautiful beach of Anakena, to see Ahu Tongariki, the largest of the 15 Moais on the island; they weigh an average of 50 tons and were destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960. Before Anakena, we will check out of Te Pito Kura and the Moai of Ahu Nau Nau.
Take a half-day private tour of Orongo. Visit Rano Kao volcano with its lake-filled crater, and see its ceremonial centre perched on the crater lip. Stop at Ahu Vinapu for a look into the architectural skill of the islanders. In the afternoon visit Aku Akivi and the quarry of Puna Pau.

Included Activities

    Depart Hanga Roa and go toward Rano Kao Volcano; inside its deep crater there is a freshwater lake covered with totora. Located on the top of the crater is Orongo, the centre where the Tangata Manu or Bird Man ceremony is celebrated each year, usually during summer. There are more than 100 petroglyphs, representing the god Make Make, the Tangata Manu, and the Manutara sea bird, among others.

    Continue on to the ceremonial platform of Ahu Vinapu, well known for its architectural perfection.


  • Sightseeing Tour
    Head north to visit the Ahu Akivi, a platform made up of seven Moais – these are the only Moais on the island that were positioned facing the sea. Move on to Huri a Urenga before visiting the Puna Pau, a quarry where the Pukao where carved (Pukao is also known as the typical hairstyle or the hats of the Moais). Learn more about the making, building, and transportation process of these colossal sculptures carved on volcanic rock.
