Discover the largest volcanic crater on Rapa Nui (Easter Island)! The spectacular eruption of Rano Kau, over two and a half million years ago, was one of the three that gave life to this magical island located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. With a diameter of over one kilometer, this amazing crater holds a beautiful freshwater lagoon. Observe the small totora islands and the lush vegetation and microfauna in the water and don’t forget to visit the ceremonial village of Orongo on the western side of the volcano.
