This Java Volcanoes tour covers spectacular sunrises from two majestic mountains, Bromo and Ijen. Part of the area around Bromo is a vast sea of sand that you can trace by jeep or on a horse back. From there, you will climb the stairs leading to the edge of the crater from which it rewards you with a stunning view.
Moving on to Ijen, you will discover another incredible sunrise and a unique sighting: the blue fire. This can usually be seen shortly after midnight; hence you can choose to wake up even earlier before the sunrise. The crater as the viewpoint, is rich in sulfur and the locals are mining it every day so during hiking, you will sometimes see them with a bunch of heavy sulfur loaded on their shoulders.
Welcome to Surabaya! Upon arrival at the airport, our representative will be waiting for you with a sign indicating your name to begin the journey of about 4 hours to your hotel on the slopes of the majestic Bromo Volcano. Check-in at your hotel for deserved rest after so many hours traveling.

The day has finally come to visit one of the most attractive volcanoes in Indonesia! One of the last surviving open pit sulfur mines on the planet.
For this climb you can choose between two schedules. Either leave very early to see the blue fire (leave the hotel around 1.30am) or leave more calmly only for sunrise (around 4am). You can choose depending on how tired you are from the trip from Bromo to Ijen, you can decide the day before with your guide.
Once we pick you up from your hotel, you will head towards the village of Licin to get to the side of the volcano to start the upward slope to the crater of the volcano itself. During this trekking, your guide will give you double filter masks to protect you from natural sulfur chemicals.
Once up, 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.
In turn, 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 sulfur 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 cool off and have breakfast. Afterwards, we start the long journey to reach Bali. It takes about 4 hours but then in Bali depending on where your hotel is, it can be from 1 to 5 hours more. Upon arrival, check-in at the hotel for the deserved rest after so many hours traveling. You must remember to add an hour to your watch, because we change the time zone. Welcome to the island of the Gods.
Our favourite time for travel in Indonesia is between April to October, although Indonesia is a great year-round destination, offering memorable experiences for all kinds of adventures.
