Moai Route Tour

Moai Route Tour

Enjoy a full-day tour along the Moai route. Start the tour with a visit to Vaihu, a place surrounded by enormous statues that have toppled face down. Next, stop at the ruins of Akahanga. Still in their original condition, they are the location where the first king of the island was buried.

See the Rano Raraku volcano located further along, close to the southern shore of the island. At the base of Poike, the most spectacular crater in the zone, former islanders carved giant statues from the volcano’s quarry — they are 20m (65t) long and just under 200 tons.

Carry on toward the beautiful beach of Anakena, to see Ahu Tongariki, the largest of the 15 Moais on the island; they weigh an average of 50 tons and were destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960. Before Anakena, we will check out of Te Pito Kura and the Moai of Ahu Nau Nau.

Orongo

Orongo

Depart Hanga Roa and go toward Rano Kao Volcano; inside its deep crater there is a freshwater lake covered with totora. Located on the top of the crater is Orongo, the centre where the Tangata Manu or Bird Man ceremony is celebrated each year, usually during summer. There are more than 100 petroglyphs, representing the god Make Make, the Tangata Manu, and the Manutara sea bird, among others. 

Head north to visit the Ahu Akivi, a platform made up of seven Moais – these are the only Moais on the island that were positioned facing the sea. Move on to Huri a Urenga before visiting the Puna Pau, a quarry where the Pukao where carved (Pukao is also known as the typical hairstyle or the hats of the Moais). Learn more about the making, building, and transportation process of these colossal sculptures carved on volcanic rock.

We had a very special experience organized by you in Feb, especially the wedding in Antarctica and our stay in Patagonia. Thank you.
You were right, Chile is enormous! We packed so much into to our two weeks and despite the huge distances we still found time to sit back and enjoy the incredible scenery. I don’t believe any country could offer more diversity, we were sat up on the Atacama Desert one week and surrounded by penguins and glaciers the next. Still not sure how all the logistics worked out so well, but they did so thank you. Loved all three of the Tierra properties so a great recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the estancia, took me back to my childhood when I worked on a farm, although I don’t remember eating steak as good as that when I was a child!
The holiday did exactly what it said on the tin and delivered everything that I hoped it would and more. Seeing pumas in the wild was a real privilege and a dream come true, thoroughly enjoyed all the hiking in Torres Del Paine as well and of course the wine tasting in Mendoza definitely went down a treat!!!
We would like to thank you with all our heart for our fabulous trip. It was amazing. Everything was perfect. I recommend Antarctica and South America to everybody. Doing business with you was also a great experience. You are the best travel agent I ever met. I hope to have the chance to do business with you again in the future.
We've just got back from out trip to Patagonia and the Antarctic and want to say a big thank you to all of you at Wildfoot but specifically you, Tina and Sara, for organising our trip and sorting out all my queries before we went. You've all been thoroughly professional - and friendly with it. I always get concerned that hotels won't have received the booking, the air e-tickets won't be recognised or luggage ends up somewhere other that where we are, but I didn't need to worry as everything was well planned in advance and the various elements, air travel, two cruises, hotels etc, fitted seamlessly. You can take this as a 10 out of 10 satisfaction rating and recommendation for your company. You will certainly be my 'go to' provider if we ever do anything similar in the future. Thanks once again for our trip of a lifetime.
