    Itinerary: The excursion begins in the town of Hanga Roa towards Ahu Vinapu, a temple whose moais (sculptures) are curiously similar to stone works created by the Incas evidence, according to some researchers, that the first inhabitants on the island were of South America descent. The excursion proceeds vertically, up the Rano Kau volcano to the city of Orongo, the center or the Bird Man cult (a bizarre ceremony was traditionally held here each year to elect islandís religious leader). Note that the houses in Orongo, made of soft stone, have been meticulously restored, but the cliff side has been left untouched: it is adorned with hundreds of petroglyphs such as Tangata Manu, the Bird Man, the Manu Tara, the sacred bird itself, and Makemake, the god who, it was believed, created the world. Pause to enjoy a spectacular view of islets Motu Nui, Motu-Iti and Motu Kao-Kao. Return to the hotel.

    Itinerary: The trip starts in the town of Hanga Roa, heading to Ahu Tahai, a temple restored in the late 1960s by North American archaeologist William Mulloy. This 7th-century ceremonial compound, which is the oldest on the island, is made up of three different ahus: Ahu Ko Te Riku, a large (weighing around 20 tons) solitary moai, complete with topknot, around 690 B.C.; Ahu Vai Uri, a cluster of five moais; and Ahu Tahai, another single moai, this one without a topnot, in the center. The tour continues with a stop in Hanga Roa at the Sebastián Englert Anthropological Museum to better understand the history of the island (exceptional exhibits include the only intact eye of a moai ever found). The tour starts at Ahu Akivi, seeing seven spectacular moais (also restored by Mulloy) that date back to 1460 B.C., and finishes at Puna a Pau Hill, a red stone quarry that was most likely the source for the moaiís topknots and ornamental hairpieces. Return to the hotel.

    Itinerary: This trip begins in the town of Hanga Roa towards the southern shore at Ahu Vaihu, where eight large moais lie in ruins. The second stop is Ahu Akahanga, which is one long stone platform and four fallen moais, the site, according to the legend, of the tomb of the islandís first king, Hotu Matua. The ride proceeds to Ahu Tongariki, the largest ahu ever built. Destroyed by a tsunami in 1960, this Ahu was later re-assembled and now all 15 moai stand together. The tour resumes with a drive past La Perouse bay to the Ahu Te Pito Kura, which is said to symbolize the Navel of the World.(The name literally means navel of light, referring to the stone from which the moai was carved.) En route to Anakena beach, visit the partially rebuilt Ahu Nau Nau and the lone moai of Ahu Ature Huki. Enjoy a leisurely picnic on the beach where, it is believed, Hotu Matua first came ashore. Return along Vaitea Road in the evening.
