Day 2 Exploring Easter Island
Tailor this day to your personal style and interests with the included excursions of your choice; they’re expertly guided and designed to immerse you and your fellow lodge guests in the windswept beauty of Rapa Nui, its people, and the enigmatic moai – the enormous stone figures scattered across the island. Here are some of the excursions that you might join:
Sunrise at Ahu Tongariki: With its 15 standing stone figures, Ahu Tongariki is one of the most photographed sites on the island – majestic, evocative and mysterious. Setting out at dawn to visit this extraordinary place is a 2-hour experience you will never forget.
Cycling Easter Island: Active travelers will relish this opportunity to experience the island’s beauty on a gently-paced 3-hour cycling excursion. Along the way, you’ll visit a number of important sites including Ahu Te Peu, the ruins of an ancient village.
Hiking Ara Moai: This half-day excursion includes a 3.5-mile guide hike to Rano Raraku, the ancient volcanic quarry where the most of the island’s moai were carved long ago. The Ara Moai Trail that leads up to Rano Raraku offers captivating island vistas punctuated by the remains of nearly 400 moai – some finished but many left here in a half-completed state.
Sunset at Tahai: With several moai set on a bluff above the Pacific, this is a spectacular place to watch the sun setting behind these carved stone figures.
Back at our lodge, you’ll enjoy fine dining with house wines and spirits. Meals B+L+D
