Details of Day Tours

We will meet at 9:15 AM to leave for Ana Kai Tangata, one of the most historic caves in Rapa Nui, and one of the most accessible. Here we will be able to see drawings of birds of stylized form, which represent the Manutara (sea swallows), whose precious egg was the center of the annual competition of the bird man. 

We will then visit the ceremonial center (ahu) of Vinapú, where we can find large basalt tiles that fit similarly to the Inca constructions of Cuzco. We will not find this way of working the stone in any other corner of Polynesia.

Then we will go to know the Rano Kau volcano, which forms one of the three big cones that are part of the surface of the island, where there is a lagoon with small islands of totora, abundant vegetation and micro fauna.

Finally, we will visit the ceremonial village of Orongo, where the Bird Man ceremony was held. This ceremony designated with the King who would be the spiritual and political leader for a period of one year. This sacred character, which is represented as a shrunken man's body and a large bird's beak, is engraved on a large number of stones.

After exploring Orongo, we will return to our selected hotels at approximately 12 PM.
