Your Easter Island tour begins with a visit to the ruins of the temple of Akahanga to admire the moai, before continuing to the volcano of Rano Raraku which is where the moai were carved from the rock of the volcano. You can enjoy a short climb to the volcanic crater to see the small lake that sits within the crater and to see part-finished moai at various stages of construction. You will then visit Ahu Tongariki which is where many of the moai were toppled by a large seaquake in 1960 before the day concludes at Anakena beach where you will have time to swim in the beautiful waters.
