Continuing your trip, you will go to Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater formed of consolidated ash, which also contains a lagoon. The volcano has a historical significance for the island, because on its slopes the Moais were carved. Currently, there remain 397 of these impressive sculptures.

Finally, we will finish our day in the beautiful setting of Anakena.
