This tour explores the eastern part of the island and will introduce you to important aspects of the fascinating history of Rapa Nui. After leaving Hanga Roa, we drive to the south along the coastal road, with views of the Poike extinct volcano and the whole black volcanic rock coastline. The first stop is Vaihu, where we can see an ancient temple and fallen Moai statues. On the way to the next stop we will pass by several Moais lying along the road, giving it the name of "Camino de los Moais" (the trail where Moais were moved).

When then reach Rano Raraku - the quarry where all Moais were sculpted. After lunch we begin a walk up to the Rano Raraku volcano. Next is the restored giant Ahu Tongariki and its 15 Moais, followed by a small break to visit two beaches; Ovahe, a small bay with a cave and nearly pink-coloured sand and Anakena, a white sandy beach with coconut palm trees and inviting warm Pacific water.
