Day 01 : Pick up service
Starting from Surabaya Airport, Train station or from your hotel in the Surabaya area, our english speaking driver will pick you up with an AC vehicle to bring you to the mount Bromo area (+-4 hours).

Day 02 : Bromo sunrise & volcano
Wake up at 3:00 am for a departure at 3:30. A 4WD vehicle will pick you up from your hotel to bring you to Penanjakan View point (2775m) located just north of the caldera on the highest point of the rim of the Bromo-Tengger national park. As this place is quite crowded, leaving early will ensure you to reach the viewpoint before dawn and have a good position to watch the sunrise of a lifetime over a sea of sand and many volcanoes. If a landscape was ever needed to demonstrate the meaning of the phrase “desolate beauty”, then this is surely it. From there if the weather is clear, you can see up to the majestic stratovolcano Semeru that sits just behind the Bromo. this mountain is also iconic, puffing ashes and smoke through small eruptions every 30mins. Ancient Javanese Hindu texts tell of how Bromo-Penanjakan-Semeru was the spiritual axis of the universe and the point of all creation. The view from Penanjakan will explain why it is truly breathtaking. After this, back in 4WD, thought the sea of sand we will continue our journey to the Broom crater. From the parking area you have to options to reach the crater, by foot (free) or horse riding (not included) passing right next to “The Poten”.The Poten is the Tenggerese Hindu temple that sits looking eerily beautiful in the sea of sand close to Mount Bromo. There is something quite magical about this place and the frugality of its decoration and austere design seems very appropriate for the location. It takes around 30 mins to reach the crater rim. Bromo is still a very active volcano and sometimes the access is restricted to some areas for security concerns. We will keep you informed about the status at the time of reservation. At 8:00, back in the car for breakfast at your hotel and then starting our journey to Pronojiwo (nearest village to tumpak sewu waterfall.

You will mainly enjoy those sceneries on the way back during daytime. From Paltuding Area, at around 1:30pm, you will start hiking to Ijen Crater. It takes about 1:30 -1:45 minutes for the 3km hike following gentle slope and slightly uphill to reach the summit. The path is pretty well maintained in good condition and other views of rounding volcanoes and luxurious vegetation will accompany your journey. From the crater rim, providing you gas mask, we will bring you down to see the blue fire right on the edge of the acidic lake (temperature of the lake : +- 40°c; Ph: 0,5 ; max depth:+-200m). The laker is also the source for the river Banyupahit, resulting in highly acidic and metal-enriched river water which has a significant detrimental effect on the downstream river ecosystem.
Hike to go down (+- 45mins, rocky) .
The blue fire is ignited sulphuric gas, which emerges from cracks at temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius (1,112 degrees Fahrenheit). Those gases are directly originated from the magmatic chamber under the volcano. The flames can be up to 5 metres high; some of the gas condenses to liquid and is still ignited. It is the largest blue flame area in the world and one of the purest sulfur mine. Escaping volcanic gases are channelled through a network of ceramic pipes, resulting in condensation of molten sulfur. The sulphur, which is deep red in colour when molten, pours slowly from the ends of these pipes and pools on the ground, turning bright yellow as it cools. The miners break the cooled material into large pieces and carry it away in baskets. Miners carry loads ranging from 75 kilograms to 90 kilograms, up 300 metres to the crater rim, with a gradient of 45 to 60 degrees and Most miners make this journey twice a day. (wikipedia)
After enjoying the spectacular Blue Fire, we go back to crater rim to enjoy the sunset over
Bali and over the entire volcanic area.
