What Will You Do

O'rongo Village

O'rongo village is located on one side of the Rano Kau volcano crater. Its spectacular scenic location, its archaeological and historic relevance, the diversity and complexity of the site, make Orongo village one of the most important attractions of the island. It's one of the two main sites on the island as in this place was celebrated the Birdman ceremony. It also has a visitor reception center with a permanent interpretive exhibition.

Rano Kau

Located in the southwest side of the island the crater of this volcano is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Rapa Nui. With 1.5 Km large this crater is the biggest reserve of endemic flora of Rapa Nui and it lake served as an important source of drinking water in ancient times.

Ahu Tahira & Vinpu

​Highlighted archaeological site characterized by the fine work of the ancient builders of Rapa Nui. There are some theories about the construction of this first platform establishing a hypothetical relationship with the Inca construction style.

Puna Pau

​Quarry from where the red volcanic stone was extracted and used for the carving of the Pu Kao or the moai's hair. In this place we find 23 cylindrical prototypes of Pu Kao at an early stage of carving facilitating the transportation to the ahu.  Here you also have a privileged view of Hanga Roa village.

Ahu A'Kivi

One of the very few ceremonial platforms not located by the sea. Its seven moais have been restored to their standing position by the archaeologists William Mulloy and Gonzalo Figueroa along with the Rapa Nui community. These moai have the particularity of having astronomical positioning guidance and look towards the setting sun.

Tahai

Ceremonial Complex restored in 1974 by the American archaeologist Dr. William Mulloy. Tahai embraces three principal ahu from north to south: Ko Te Riku (restored eyes one), Tahai, and Vai Ure. For its proximity to town it's a popular place for sunset photos.
