Very early, your guide and a jeep driver will be waiting for you at the hotel to witness one of the most spectacular sunrises in Indonesia. Even if you have to get up early, it will be worth it. In a jeep, we will go to the slopes of the volcano where after climbing some stairs you can get to the very edge of its crater and see the impressive activity it has.
You will go up to a high point first in the dark and, little by little, the first rays of sun give way to a huge and indescribable caldera that makes up the entire view of the Bromo and Semeru Natural Park.
Behind Bromo with its large fumaroles, is the Semeru Volcano with explosions almost every 20 minutes. Together will make you have one of the most rewarding experiences ever. We return to the hotel to refresh you and enjoy your breakfast.

The day has finally come to visit one of the most attractive volcanoes in Indonesia! We will head towards the village of Licin to begin the uphill climb to the Ijen crater. During this trekking, your guide will give you double filter masks to protect you from natural sulphur chemicals. Once you are up there at an altitude of 2883 meters and when it begins to dawn, an incredible contrast of colors will open before your eyes.
A scene of yellow earth and a large turquoise blue lake inside the crater that contrast with a suspended white cloud that is continuously expelling the volcano. Among so much beauty, you will see the locals working where it is said to be one of the hardest jobs in the world. These miners go down to the crater of the volcano to load 80 to 100 kilos of sulphur on their shoulders and then sell it. After this amazing experience on the edge of the Ijen volcano crater, we begin the descent with an incredible panoramic view of the mountains that make up the national park.
We will take you to your hotel to refresh and have breakfast and then start the new journey to the Meru Betiri National Park. This road lasts about 3.5 hours by car plus what it takes at stops to eat or walk. The road is a little bumpy, but you will enjoy more isolated villages from society, beaches and hidden coves and plantations. If you arrive on time, you can take a bath on the beautiful beach that awaits us.
Around 8 PM, with a local guide we will approach Sukamade Beach to try to see turtles laying (not guaranteed). Then after that, we return to hotel for rest.
