Ahu Tahai Sunset Excursion

At the scheduled time, we'll pick you up from your hotel on Easter Island and drive north towards Hanga Roa. Located in the outskirts of the island's capital, we'll find the Ahu Tahai ceremonial complex, an important archaeological site with colossal moai statues.

We'll arrive at this ancient Rapa Nui sanctuary in the late afternoon, just in time to see the sunset over Ahu Tahai. The sunset will cast a purple, scarlet and orange haze over the moai, creating one of the most striking and unforgettable sunsets on Easter Island.

As we watch the sun set over the horizon, we'll learn about the history of Tahai. This archaeological complex is divided into three ahus, which are ceremonial platforms. These are Ahu Ko Te Riku, Ahu Tahai and Ahu Vai Ure. Only a single moai remains on the first two, but the third has five colossal structures lined up along the western coast of the island with their backs to the Pacific Ocean.

The mysteries behind Ahu Tahai are innumerable. For example, what was the significance of these statues, and why do some moai have a kind of cap on their heads while others don't? We'll attempt to unravel these intriguing mysteries little by little in the light of dusk.

After 2 magical hours at Ahu Tahia, we'll return to your hotel.
