    Day 1: US - Easter Island
    Upon Arrival reception with a necklace of flowers and transfer to the Hotel of your choice. Day at Leisure. 

    Day 2: Easter Island - Full Day Anakena Beach 

    Breakfast ,This tour lasts approximately 6 hours and 30 minutes and is designed to follow the steps of the first king of the island, the Ariki Hotu Matuá, during the colonization period. A total of five archaeological sites are visited: Akahanga, Tongariki, Rano Raraku, Te Pito Kura and Anakena. After the 2nd point you can include lunch, which is provided in Rano Raraku. After lunch, the tour will continue along the north coast visiting Te Pito Kura, the archaeological site known as the navel of the world. The last site will be Anakena where they will know two restored platforms with moai and several archaeological artifacts (petroglyphs, ancestral houses, etc.). At the end a time will be devoted to rest and enjoy the white sand and crystal clear waters of Anakena.
     
    Ahu Akahanga, the first site on the tour, is a splendid residential and ceremonial area that contains a variety of ancient structures including fallen statues or vertically placed on its platform. Ceremonial altars, an earth oven (umu pae), ancestral houses (hare paenga), caverns and circular agricultural structures (manavai). In total, the site contains thirteen statues (moai) and eight headdresses (pukao).
     
    Ahu Tongariki Second site to visit, is one of the ceremonial platforms most recognized internationally given its immense ceremonial altar which is decorated with 15 majestic statues. Tongariki is a testament to the incredible megalithic culture of the island, being the largest ceremonial altar in all of Polynesia and the largest archaeological site on the island. This site was restored during the 1980s after a large tsunami from the east in 1960, demolished and uprooted statues of up to 80 tons by 500 meters (1500 feet) into the interior of the island.
     
    The third stop on the excursion is an extinct volcano located in the southeast of the island and containing a surprising crater with fresh water inside. Rano Raraku is undoubtedly one of the most important archaeological sites in the world given that it is the point where the legendary moai statues were carved. A path that borders the base of the volcano (a walk of minimum to regular demand) allows a direct view of the statues that are still embedded in the rock of the quarry, while others are standing, waiting for their transfer to their corresponding ceremonial platform. We will also see the largest moai ever carved called Ko te tokanga (the giant) that measures the astonishing length of 22 meters / 66 feet and has an estimated weight of 220 tons. Here, those who included their Box Lunch, can take place in totora quinchos for lunch or make use of restaurant to enjoy typical dishes of Rapa Nui
     
     
    Ahu Te Pito Kura is an archaeological site that contains the largest statue wich has  been carved and placed on to a ceremonial plaform, measuring 10 meters (30 feet) high and weighing approximately 90 tons.  This moai statue also has  its topknot or hairdress, which has been stimated to weight 11,5 tons.  This site is located along the northeast coast and also contains a sacred stone believed to have been brought by the island´s first King: Ariki Hotu Matu’a, from his native land of Hiva.
     
    As the final and last stop on the full day tour, 45 a 60 minutes is given in order to visit two ceremonial altars adorned with moai statues (Ahu Nau Nau and Ahu Ature Huki) and to enjoy the palm trees and cristal clear waters of Anakena beach.  Also at Anakena beach, one will be able to eat locally prepared dishes, and visit many local handicraft kioskos that contain authentic Rapa Nui souvenirs               
    Box Lunch Included. 



    Day 3: Easter Island   Orongo & Ahu Akivi 
    In this tour, you will visit the sites: Rano Kau, Orongo and Vinapu. For security reasons, Ana Kai Tangata can no longer be visited, as the danger of collapse is imminent. In it we could visualize rock art, giving maximum connotation to the Manutara or Polinésic Gaviotín, whose egg was the center of the annual “Bird Man”competition . We start with Rano Kau volcano, there is a lagoon with small totora islands and abundant vegetation and microfauna. This was one of the largest wetlands in Rapa Nui.  We continue with the Ceremonial Village of Orongo, where the “Bird Man” Ritual  was performed, together with the king designated who would be the spiritual and political leader during the period of one year. This sacred figure with the body of a shrunken man and a great bird's beak is sculpted in a large number of engraved stones.  Arriving to Vinapu, archaeological site characterized by its large basalt slabs fitted perfectly one from the other, we can appreciate the great architectural similarity with Inca constructions in Cuzco.

     
    Time For Lunch Not Included.
    in the Afternoon ,we will visit Ahu Huri a Urenga, one of the 25 statues that is not located on the coast, but rather to the interior of the Island. This particular moai has two pairs of hands and is located in the direction of the winter solstice. 
    Continuing with the journey, we will make our second stop at the Puna Pau red scoria quarry. Factory of the famous red headdresses that some moai have on their heads.  Finally we head towards Ahu Akivi, one of the few platforms where the moai look towards the sea. Currently with 7 sculptures, it is said that they represent the 7 explorers sent by King Hotu Matu'a before his colonizing trip
