Continue to the picturesque port of Valparaíso, built in the XVI century on a total of 43 hills, which are reached by narrow windy streets, staircases and a series of lifts (funiculars) which is now declared by UNESCO as World Heritage Site because of its eclectic architecture and urban development.

Tongariki, Rano Raraku & Anakena: Visit the ruins of the temple of Akahanga, where the hats of the moai are the outstanding feature; they lie where they fell when the platform was destroyed. Continue to the volcano of Rano Raraku, where all the moais on the island were carved out of the rock. Climb to the edge of the crater of the volcano to appreciate the small lake inside and moais scattered about the inner slopes in various stages of construction. Continue to Ahu Tongariki, where many of the huge moais were toppled by a large “seaquake” in 1960. Finally, the tour ends at Anakena beach with its two beautiful Ahu.

Day 6

Easter Island (B)

Breakfast at the hotel.

AM: Exc. Rano Kau, Orongo & Vinapu: The tour starts visiting Vinapu. Next, continue to Rano Kau, which was the second of the three main volcanoes to erupt about 2.5 million years ago. It has a height of 310m and a huge crater of 1.6km in diameter and a fresh water lagoon 11m deep. Next to the volcano is the ancient ceremonial city of Orongo, where the greatest concentration of petroglyphs exists. There are pictures of the Tangata Manu birdman. PM: Ahu Akivi & Puna Pau: Ahu Akivi is the archaeological center of the Roihi sector and was the first site to be properly restored in the 1960’s. It is a ceremonial site, which is particularly interesting not only because of its location (in the center of the island) but also because of the legends that surround the Seven Moai, which are situated on the platform or Ahu. The tour also visits Puna Pau, to the east of the town of Hanga Roa, which is situated in a small crater of red stone. This is where the “pukao” or hats (topknots) which crowned the moais were made. On the way, it is possible to see the path where they were transported, including some examples of the Pukao, which have fallen by the wayside. Return to the Hotel and overnight.
