The trip starts out very early. Visitors are collected at their hotels from 06:00 to 07:00 am, depending on whether its summer or winter. Later the road leads to the southern coast area until reaching Ahu Tongariki, the largest ceremonial center in all of Polynesia. Fifteen Moais stand here, more than 14 meters (45.9 ft.) tall, representing the islanders’ ancestors, hence their different shapes and sizes. The waves crashing against the cliffs and the sun timidly rising from behind the gigantic sculptures are part of this great sunrise spectacle. Great time for photos and walking around the site. At the end of tour returns to Hanga Roa.
