- Discover the mystery of the Moai
- See a UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Moai are 887 immense stone statues in the shape of human figures standing on Easter Island, off the coast of Chile. An enormous archaeological feat for the Rapa Nui people, they are thought to have been carved between 1250 and 1500AD - the largest weighs around 82 tonnes. This fascinating and indispensable Easter Island gift experience takes the form of a guided tour of the Rapa Nui National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where many of the statues are located.
You’ll visit the ceremonial site of Ahu Vinapu to learn the theories behind the enduring mystery of why these statues were built, their importance to Polynesian culture, and who built them. Easter Island is known in the world over for these distinctive statues and also the tragedy of how its population was entirely decimated in a short space of time. This is the essential tour on one of the most remote islands on the planet.
