Easter Island is one of the world’s most isolated inhabited islands in the southeastern Pacific Ocean.
Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai , created by the early Rapa Nui People. In 1995, Unesco named Easter Island a world Heritage site, with much of the island protected within Rapa nui National Park.
The name “Easter Island” was given by the island’s first recorded European visitor, the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered it on Easter Sunday.
The large stone statues, or Maoi, for which Easter Island is famous, were carved in the period 1100–1680 Ce. A total of 887 monolithic stone statues have been inventoried on the island and in museum collections so far.Often identified as “Easter Island heads

It’s one of the island’s 25 ceremonial platforms and has a single Moai statue -restored in 1976 by Dr William Mulloy- the only one known in the island to have four hands. The visit continues to AhuAkivi, an archaeological site in the Roihi sector and the first that was scientifically restored in the 1960s. It consists of a ceremonial site, particularly interesting not only for its location (in the center of the island) but also for the legends about its seven Moai. Later is a stop at AhuVaiTek archaeological site, with a large concentration of caverns and holes that probably contained water resources for Rapa Nui’s early inhabitants. The last site to be checked out is Puna Pau, located east of Hanga Roa village, in a small crater of red volcanic matter. At the end of tour returns to Hanga Roa.
