Royal Miru District: Full Day Private Hike

By Rapanui Pioneers Society (RPS)
Royal Miru District: Full Day Private Hike is an archaeological field trip that explores the northwestern region of the island, the abandoned territories of the aristocratic Miru clan in pre-Christian times. It's a 10 mile hike over a section of Rapa Nui that is rarely visited by tourists. We see ruins of ancient settlements, fallen moai, ahu, caves and petroglyphs. This field trip is based on scientific, ethnographic and historical evidence supplemented by a deep knowledge of our oral tradition. RPS Experiences is the tourism wing of the Rapanui Pioneers Society, a research and educational organization formed by thoroughly experienced members. Especially recomended for travelers that prefer to know the island at the true human scale, hiking and trekking. Hiking experience recommended. Private service. Limited availability.

We spent the day with Cristián, our guide from the Rapi Nui Pioneers Society (RPS), on the Royal Muri District hike. Cristián is a professional historian whose knowledge of the archeological wonders of Easter Island is amazing. As we hiked the ten miles of this excursion along the stunning hillsides of northern Rapi Nui, he showed us ancient village locations, ahu sites, original boat house foundations, fallen moai, caves, and even a ocean blow hole. At each stop, Cristián gave us historical commentary and explanations of what we were seeing. I can be a bit curious about things, but there seemed to be no question he could not answer. At the end of the day, we had time to swim at Anakena beach (delightful) before we were driven back to our guest houses. You’ll need to be a hiker with proper boots and clothing for this trip but you will see and experience parts of Rapi Nui that fewer than one in a hundred ever do,

The RPS tours can cost a bit more than others, but remember that you are also supporting an organization dedicated to Rapi Nui research, preservation, and responsible tourism.
