Rapanui Origins: Full Day Private Tour

Rapanui Origins: Full Day Private Tour is an exploration of the origins of the Rapanui people, the inhabitants of Easter Island. To find out, we visit multiple key archaeological sites including Vinapu, Anakena, Te Pito Kura and Ahu Akivi to get an overview from a scientific, ethnographic, historical and traditional versions of the first human settlement.

Our guides are scholars or local experts with a vast trajectory working in tourism and experience with some of the top companies in Rapa Nui and abroad.

Our slow tours go against the fast-paced group tours to make sure that our Rapanui culture is well represented. We visit the sites during the hours of best light and avoiding (as much as possible) the busy hours, and we take our time on each site to obtain a thorough experience.

This tour is also customizable depending on our travelers' special interests.

    Ruins of two important ceremonial centers can be seen in this area. Multiple fallen and broken statues are visible and many pukao as well. The wall of one of the ahu looks similar to some inca and pre-inca stonework which led to speculations about the origin of the first settlers. Lots of peculiar things to be found in the surrounding area.

    Te Pito Kura is an egg-shaped magnetic rock that has been the subject of old legends. Next to it there is a large ahu that has only one fallen statue: Moai Paro, a huge moai among the biggest of the whole island.
