    Stop At: Ahu Tahai, Rapa Nui, Easter Island Chile

    Start the journey by visiting the ahu platforms at Tahai, where the clear morning light brings alive the moai that look over this restored ancestral village of the Rapanui people. Great in the morning for capturing images of the three restored ahu platforms, and for exploring the restored village of the ancient islanders which gives us information on the religious rites and customs which made up every day life.

    Duration: 40 minutes

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

    One of the largest archeological complexes on the island, Ahu Akahanga is an unrestored conglomerate of three ahu platforms sitting as they have been for over two hundred years since the islanders turned on the traditions of their ancestors and began toppling the hundreds of moai found throughout the island.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Ahu Tongariki, Easter Island Chile

    Stand in awe at the restored site of Ahu Tongariki, where fifteen stone giants stand watch over the land as silent sentinels, dwarfing all who come into their presence.

    Restored between 1992 and 1996, this is the most inspiring of the various platforms. Here, fifteen of the largest moai set their stone faces like flint, looking eternally toward the setting of the sun, as well and the comparatively insignificant tourists who come to pay them homage.


    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Rano Raraku, Easter Island Chile

    Spend a bulk of the afternoon absorbing the grandeur of the moai that sit half emerged from the soil in Rano Raraku, the volcano crater that acted as a stone quarry and birthplace for these immense figures. Here, hundreds of handsome heads and torsos sit in various stages of carving, still waiting to be transported to their various ahu located all over the island.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Ahu Te Pito Kura, Easter Island Chile

    At ten metres tall, here lies one of the tallest moai ever to be erected, now but a vestige of its former glory. Nearby sits the famous magnetic circular stone which legend says came to Easter Island from the ancient homeland of Hiva with the first king, Hotu Matuʻa.


    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Anakena Beach, Easter Island Chile

    Anakena beach belonged to the royal family in ancient times, and it is easy to see why. With its crystalline water, white sand, coconut palms and royal moai, it truly is one of a kind.
