InfoVenture through the most remote areas of Easter Island with countless examples of unique archaeology, exciting caves, ancient buildings and traces of prehistoric culture scattered all around. The tribes of these distant lands were cut-off from the rest of the island, which resulted in different solutions and ideas. As no roads go here, the archaeology has been untouched ever since people moved out hundreds of years ago. North Coast
InfoVisit exciting caves in the remote central and west area of Easter Island. The road here is too bad for going with a car, so the areas don't receive many visitors.

Photography

InfoThere is no better way to start the day than to enjoy the breathtaking spectacle of seeing the sun rise behind Ahu Tongariki - the largest and most impressive monument of Easter Island. The ancient Rapa Nui people would do this every morning as the sun was a very central part of life - especially to the Tongariki tribe, as the whole monument of Ahu Tongariki is perfectly aligned with the sunrise at summer solstice, around the 21st of June each year. Tongariki sunrise
InfoAhu Akivi is beautiful at sunset, but still quite unknown as a sunset spot, so expect less people. These statues are among the few moais that will have the warm sunset light fall on the faces. The seven statues of Ahu Akivi are the only moais that face the ocean instead of looking inland. They are rumored to do so since they represent the seven navigators first sent by king Hotu Matu'a to find this land a thousand years ago, and that they look back towards Hiva, where they once came from.

Meditation

InfoThe sacred moai statues were built for one sole purpose - to preserve the mana of the ancestors for later generations, to give us luck and fortune in life. Feel the ancient energy while meditating in front of the moai statues under the lead of a native Rapa Nui instructor, whose ancestors carved and raised these megaliths of greatness. Mana of the Moai
