Rano Kau, Easter Island
(5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Ascend Rano Kau, an extinct volcano that not only helped create Easter Island but now sustains it. The lake serves as one of the three natural freshwater sources here. Climb to the rim of the caldera and take in a clear, panoramic view of the entire lake, as well as the ecosystem that has developed inside it. Located with a World Heritate-listed park and just off the Orongo path, the volcano is easy to combine with a trip to other sites. Arrange to visit Rano Kau and other attractions in Hanga Roa using our Hanga Roa vacation builder.
