Day 1

Orongo: Through the lethal birdman competitions, a leader was elected in this ceremonial village to rule over the other tribes for the coming 12 months. The strong winds of the ridge of volcano Rano Kau forced the tribesmen to invent a new kind of house made out of rocks where the tribes would stay during the ceremonies.

Rano Kau (Orongo): From within Orongo we'll have a stunning view of the crater of this volcano. This is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Rapa Nui. The crater lake served as an important source of drinking water in ancient times.

Ahu Akivi: The seven mysterious moai statues of Ahu Akivi are the only ones that are facing the ocean. They are said to represent the great navigators once sent my legendary king Hotu Matu'a to find this land a thousand years ago.

Rano Raraku: The volcano that was converted into a mass production factory of gigantic megaliths where virtually all moais were carved. One day the workers stopped, and the hundreds of statues that were left behind haven't moved since.
