Delve into the archaeological mysteries of Easter Island's Rapa Nui National Park on this half-day tour. Stand before ancient 'moai' stone sculptures carved by the indigenous Rapa Nui, learn why the moai at Ahu Akivi face the ocean, and dig deeper on the topic of why the masonry at Ahu Vinapu has perplexed experts. You'll also visit the harbor town of Hanga Piko to observe a restored ceremonial moai.

Rapa Nui National Park, a wildlife sanctuary spread across most of Easter Island and a UNESCO World Heritage site, contains about 900 moai sculptures as well as 300 ahu, or ceremonial platforms, on which the carved figures stand. Sculpted from solidified volcanic ash, these statues are believed to represent the spirits of ancestors and high-ranking members of each tribe.

After hotel pickup from Hanga Roa, travel south with your guide into the park to Ahu Vinapu, one of the larger ceremonial sites. See how the precise cuts of basalt (a volcanic stone) that make up the platform are meticulously fitted together. It's arguably the most advanced masonry found on the island.

Continue north to Puna Pau to see how some moai sport a different look. You'll notice they have pukao, or topknots made out of red scoria on their heads. It's believed the volcanic rock was used to impress rival tribes. Roughly 30 pukao are located in or near the Puna Pau quarry, the source of the red scoria.

Break up the trip with a brief stop at the harbor of Hanga Piko to examine the restored Ahu Riata moai who watches over fishermen.

Then head to Ahu Akivi, where you’ll see a line of seven moai looking out toward the ocean. The moai here each stand 16 feet (5 meters) tall and weigh about 18 tons (16 metric tons). What's mysterious about these sea-facing figures? It's an unusual sight considering the other ahu moai stand with their backs against the water.

One theory behind their unusual position: These moai symbolize the seven explorers from the Polynesian homeland of Hiva sent by the chief to find the island of Rapa Nui (now Easter Island). According to this hypothesis, these statues face the ocean in the direction they came from.

After your engaging exploration of ahu moai, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.

Immerse yourself in the dramatic beauty of Easter Island on this full-day tour from Hanga Roa, and wander through various landscapes with 'moai,' gigantic human figure statues sculpted by the indigenous Rapa Nui. Against an ocean backdrop, discover the original ceremonial site of Ahu Akahanga and ponder over its toppled moai. Then view restored statues at Ahu Tongariki, before exploring the volcanic slopes and quarry of Rano Raraku, where most moai originated and can be found. Finish the day by relaxing on the white sand beach of Anakena.

On your sightseeing adventure, you'll come across moai, stone giants that on average stand 13 feet (4 meters) tall and weigh 14 tons (13 metric tons). Said to represent ancestral spirits or preeminent tribal figures, some moai are placed upon ahu, or ceremonial sites.

After hotel pickup, your guide takes you to Ahu Akahanga, located on the southeastern coast of the island. Unlike most ahu, Akahanga has not been restored, allowing you to stumble upon the area as European explorers first did. The platform, about 59 feet (18 meters) long, originally contained about a dozen moai and is believed to be the burial site of Polynesian king Hoto Matu’a.

Walk about the grounds sprawled with overturned moai that have pukao, decorative head topknots, with tribal fighting providing one explanation for this curious scene.

Next, head north up the coastline to Ahu Tongariki, the largest ceremonial site with an impressive row of 15 upright moai. Learn how a tsunami in 1960 sent these statues, some weighing 30 tons (27 metric tons), flying several hundred feet inland. Restoration of this site took five years and was completed in 1992.

Then travel inland to Rano Raraku, where on its volcanic slopes Rapa Nui sculptors had carved moai from volcanic stone before moving about one third of them to various ahu. Many of the island’s 800-plus moai remain in the quarry and close by; as you trek with your guide toward the stone pit, you’ll see poking up from the grassy earth hundreds of moai heads or partially buried torsos.

Enjoy a barbecue lunch (provided) at a nearby camping area, which includes chicken and other meats, fish, salad, rice, fruit and water. A vegetarian option can be arranged upon request. You’ll spend about 2.5 hours in total at Rano Raraku with lunch time.

Refueled, continue north to Ahu Te Pito Kura and marvel at Paro, the tallest moai ever erected at 33 feet (9.8 meters) tall and weighing 82 tons (74 metric tons). Here, your guide points out a round magnetic stone, referred to as the ‘navel of the world,' said to have been brought over by King Hotu Matu’a.

Along the northern coast, reach your final stop at Anakena and explore the extremely well-preserved seven moai of Ahu Nau Nau, four of them wearing pukao. At this site, archaeologists located one nearly complete coral eye, inlaid with red volcanic scoria stone.

Your sightseeing complete, swim or stroll along Anakena, one of the few white sand beaches on the island, for about 30 minutes before being transported back to your hotel. Or feel free to stay longer, and your guide will arrange a cab ride for you (own expense) when you’re ready to return to your accommodation. Changing rooms with showers are available on site for a small fee.
