   GENERAL

**Volcano tours are usually fully booked months in advance, so please book your tour early. (If you are travelling during Christmas time, it is especially important to book as early as possible, as this is the busiest season.)

 

Overview:

Start your adventure with a pick-up at your accommodation in Kuta on Day 1 and a transfer to Java Island, where you will tour the city of Banyuwangi before settling in Bondowoso for overnight. On Day 2 rise early around 1am to see the otherworldy blue fire that rises from the Ijen crater by night (if you wish). Watch the sun rise over the breathtaking Ijen Crater Lake, visit a natural hot spring, see local plantations, and end your day in Mt. Bromo.  Discover stunning Mt. Penanjakan at sunrise on Day 3 before hiking Mt. Bromo for unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape and then heading out again to watch the stunning sunset over the volcano. Transfer back to Kuta on Day 4, where your trip will end in the evening. 

 

Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Transfer Kuta to Ketapang (Ijen Crater Area) with Banyuwangi  Tour

Today you will be picked up around 8am from your accommodation in Kuta for a transfer by private AC vehicle to the western tip of Bali, where you will catch a ferry to cross the Bali Strait and reach the Banyuwangi ferry port on the eastern point of Java Island. On arrival you will be taken on a short city tour in Banyuwangi before being transferred to your accommodation in Ketapang for overnight. 

 

Day 2: Ijen Blue Fire & Crater Lake - Transfer to Mount Bromo (B)

Start your day with an early pick-up around 1am for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the ethereal blue glow of the Ijen Crater. Admire the dazzling, electric-blue fire that can often be seen burning upward into the sky, glowing naturally from the sulfur-rich volcano.

As the sun rises, the blue fire will turn to yellow and then fade away. Resting on the edge of the crater (2883m) you will have the opportunity to take pictures and enjoy the breathtaking panorama of this kilometre-wide, turquoise crater lake as the sun rises. You will also have the opportunity to contemplate the arduous job of the sulfur miners that go up and down the crater carrying loads of up to 80kg on their shoulders, on dangerous paths without much safety protection.

After enjoying the the amazing scenery of the Ijen Crater, it is time to descend the slope of Mount Ijen to catch your private transportation that will take you for a quick visit to a hot spring and a plantation (optional) where you can see the activities both on the land and in the factories: local people processing coffee, rubber and chocolate (depending on the season).

After this adventurous day, continue your trip with a private transfer to Mount Bromo area around 12pm, where you will reach your accommodation in Cemara Lawang village and have the rest of the day to relax and overlook the active volcanoes of Mount Bromo, Batok and Kursi. Overnight in Bromo area. 

Please note that this is a difficult hike of around 5 hours in total. An intermediate fitness level is required.

Please note that you can optionally start today's excursion at 11pm to give yourself more time to summit the volcano and enjoy views of the amazing blue fire.

 

Day 3: Bromo Sunrise & Sunset Tours (B)

Depart at 4:00am in a 4WD vehicle to climb up Mt. Penanjakan, where you can admire an amazing sunrise and the stunning scenery of Semeru Tengger National Park, including Mount Bromo and active Mount Semeru as they create a breathtaking display of lights and shadows, accompanied by the mystic fog of the caldera. After sunrise, the adventure will continue with an active hike (you can ride a horse at extra cost) to Mount Bromo Volcano through the famous "Sea of Sands" before returning back to your accommodation around 8:00am. 

Enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure and get ready to go out again later in the afternoon, when you will be transferred to Mentigen Hill to watch the sunset at Mt. Bromo. Transfer back to your accommodation for overnight.

Please note that this climb is far less arduous and involves a 30 minute climb up stairs to the crater. A low fitness level is required.

 

Day 4: Transfer Mount Bromo to Kuta (B)

It is time to say goodbye to East Java and the spectacular Mt. Bromo and catch your return transfer to Kuta via Ketapang. This is a long journey that begins around 10:00am, arriving in Kuta in the evening. Upon arrival at your accommodation in Kuta, this amazing adventure will come to an end. We wish you safe travels onward.
