Things you might miss out on if you travel to Java on your own
Let’s share some thoughts regarding the independent visit of Bromo and Kawah Ijen.
We are a team of adventurers, and it goes without saying that we love to travel on our own. However, when discovering an unknown and potentially accident-prone site for the first time, caution is required in preparing such an endeavour. In this region of Java, you will struggle to understand and be understood, even when it comes to the basics, since English speakers are rare and far between (and French, Russian and other languages are not at all represented).
Though certain independent travellers and bloggers have managed to organize trips without encountering major problems, it must be understood that this is not a reflection of the potential risks linked to active volcano visits, which require both knowledge and experience to plan. Having been able to make the trip on one’s own without running into problems does not take anything away from the hazardousness of undertaking such an endeavour alone and/or without any experience. “Driving a motorcycle without a helmet does not systematically lead to the death of the reckless person driving, but should that person wipe out, the potential risk would be dramatic!” recounts the wise Indonesian man in charge of preparing the climbing equipment.
To minimize the risks linked to volcanic excursions and substantially save both time and money, it is essential that you be supported by a team that perfectly knows the region, its customs and languages, as well as its norms and culture.
Let us be the guide that will take care of every single important organizational detail of your visit, and that will allow you to make this tour into a truly unforgettable human adventure.
- We are familiar with every inch of the Kawah Ijen and Bromo, their surroundings, their dangers… but also every man that works and lives there. Our professional guides will take you to the best places at the best times, to witness the best views, while choosing the safest routes and sharing their deep knowledge of the volcanoes, their history and their geology.
- We organize tours in a way that guarantees your comfort and safety. Each member of our team is perfectly trained to react professionally and provide you with appropriate help during whatever situation is encountered during the excursion.
- We will take care of every detail of your adventure so that you are able to focus on yourself and the feelings generated by the experience.
Beyond our passion for volcanoes, we organize our trips in a professional and secure manner, while seeking to provide you with the utmost comfort. Our outstanding guides will accompany you along the entire hike, taking care of all of the organizational issues and sharing their know-how, knowledge and experience with you along the way.
We do our best to be that magic friend who will turn your trip into the real adventure of a lifetime. Apart from our passion to volcanoes, we arrange the trips that are professionally managed, comfortable and safe. Our outstanding guide will accompany you along the whole hike, taking care about all organizational issues and sharing diverse knowledge and experience about everything you might see on the way.

For 55 hours, we will guide you on a sensational journey across almost all of eastern Java. Travelling from sea level to an altitude of 2300 meters, we will start our hike at 1am, from Kawah Ijen base camp and we will climb to the top of volcano rim. (With our professional guide).
We are committed to your safety and endeavour to provide you with a once in a lifetime experience. Professionally managed, with a guide that has the experience to show you the best locations and vantage points at the best times, and who will be present at all times to oversee your safety.
On your return, we can guarantee you will be physically tired, but this will quickly pass, leaving you to enjoy the memories for the rest of your life.
Departure at 5 pm from south Bali in a comfortable car or van.
Arriving at night at Kawah Ijen volcano base camp (Paltulding 1900m altitude).
Pre-dawn ascent to the top of Kawah Ijen volcano (active), a descent into the crater to watch the unique phenomenon of the "blue fires" and enjoy the sunrise inside the active volcano crater.
You will descend into the crater of the volcano, (only if weather and smoke conditions are favourable) discover the nature's miracle - blue flames (until 5am), and the sunrise on the biggest acid lake in the world, an unforgettable moment…
With a respirator that protects you from sulphuric vapours, you are at the heart of the crater which is a unique sensation! So, you are in the crater which is also a "Sulphur mine" where the workers are exploiting the sulphur. You will be the witness of the enormous courage of those men (miners and carriers) who live by the extraction of this sulphur (used for pharmacology and cosmetology).

After a local breakfast at base camp, we drive through the coffee plantations of Java. Lunch will be a step before arriving at the end of the afternoon at the last village of the site of Bromo (2,300 m altitude), for a meal "local color". We will enjoy a few hours of rest (or discovery of the surroundings) to be ready for the night ascent.

Wake up and departure around 3 am, by 4x4 jeep, to cover the volcanic site. We will climb to the top of the caldera of Tenger-Bromo to reach the point of view "King Kong" (2650 m of altitude) to admire the sunrise over the following volcanoes:
Bromo (active volcano, 2,300 m above sea level).
Batok (extinct volcano, 2,400 m above sea level).
Semeru (active and erupting volcano, 3,677 m high, the highest volcano in Java).
After this sublime sunrise (and depending on the weather conditions), we will cross the "sea of sand" (composed mainly of dust and ashes of the last eruptions of the volcano), before reaching the Hindu temples at the foot of the spectacular Bromo volcanoes and Batok.

Bypassing these temples dedicated to the gods living in the crater, we will climb a narrow and winding path to the 250 steps to the summit of Bromo. Only then, bewildered by the sound of the depths of the earth, and in the cold, will we witness the spectacle of the smoking crater, its sulphurous vapors escaping from the depths of the volcano. An unforgettable memory! After discovering this extraordinary volcanic site, we will continue our adventure through beautiful landscapes, picturesque villages, various plantations (coffee, tobacco, rice, etc.) and traditional "moments of life" of this beautiful volcanic region.

We offer you the possibility of being dropped off at the Probolinggo train station at 10.30am, connection to Yogyakarta. A local cuisine lunch will delight us before our final drive to Bali.
