At your arrival at Rapa Nui Airport you will be greeted with a traditional flower collar and taken to your hotel. We recommend a visit to Hanga Roa Village with its fisher port, church and museum.
DAY 2: ANAKENA BEACH
After breakfast we will start our tour to get to know the natural beauty and the main part of the history of this unique island. Driving along the southeast coast with views of the Poike Peninsula your guide will explain why the Moais lay face down and how important the Road of Moais was. One of the main sites is the Rano Kau Volcano where the Moais have been sculptured. From here you have a beautiful view of the next highlight, the Tongariki Ahu with 15 re-erected and restored Moais. Afterwards, we will stop at the small Ovahe Beach and then at the beautiful Anakena Beach with palm trees, white sands and two small Ahus.

Today you will get to know the history of the birdman culture, which is best shown at Orongo. It is a breathtaking natural location overlooking the small Motu islands.

Continuing our journey we will drive to the quarry Puna Pau, a crater of red Scoria, of which the Pukaos where built.
