Day 1 – Train to Probolinggo and Shuttle to Bromo

Train at train station Yogyakarta at 7 am to train station Probolinggo at 4.10 pm and then, transfer by a comfortable or van car to Bromo’s village, situated 2300 meters above sea level. There we will have dinner in a traditional Indonesian restaurant — warung, — and spend the night in a cozy little guesthouse.

Day 2 – Bromo

Our journey begins with a 3:30 a.m. wake-up call and departure aboard an off-road 4x4 jeep. We will climb to the top of the Tenger-Bromo caldera to reach the “King-Kong” viewpoint (altitude of 2,650 m.)

At the viewpoint platform, we will witness a stunning sunrise over the following volcanoes:

  • Bromo (active, altitude of 2,300 m)
  • Batok (dormant, altitude of 2,400 m)
  • Semeru (active and erupting, altitude of 3,677 m, the tallest volcano in Java) 

After enjoying the beautiful view (and depending on the weather conditions), we will cross the “sea of sand” (mostly made up of the volcanic ashes and debris of prior eruptions) and head to the sacred Hindu temples at the foot of the spectacular Bromo and Batok volcanoes.

Making our way around the temples dedicated to the gods living inside the crater, we will go up a steep and narrow path and climb 250 steps to reach the top of the Bromo. Only then, stunned by the sounds coming from the entrails of the Earth, and in the cold of the night, will we be able to experience the beauty of the smoking crater, its sulfur vapors emanating from the depths of the volcano. A truly unforgettable moment!

After exploring this extraordinary volcanic site, we will continue on our adventure, witnessing magnificent landscapes, traditional villages, various plantations (coffee, tobacco, rice, etc.), and authentic moments of the Javanese lifestyle in this beautiful volcanic region. We will enjoy a meal of local delicacies before making our way to the hotel.

Day 3 – Conquering the Kawah Ijen

Departure at +/- 11 p.m. (Day 2) for a 2 hours transfer to the Kawah Ijen base camp. After receiving instructions on safety and following the allocation of the necessary equipment (lamps, gas masks, etc.), we will start the climb at around 1 a.m. Our experienced and professional guides will lead you along a beautiful mountain path under the starry sky in order to reach the top of the crater (altitude of 2,300 m). It will take us between 1:30 and 2 hours to reach the top.

Once at the top of the crater, the most exciting part begins: we will descend, in complete darkness, into the crater of the active volcano to witness the unique phenomenon of the “blue flames”.

Our guides principally made up of former sulfur miners and porters and therefore very knowledgeable about the crater, will help you descend safely. They will exercise constant vigilance and make sure you are using the protective masks appropriately, providing you with constant help and guidance within this extremely spectacular environment.

At +/- 5 a.m., watching the sunrise above the largest acid lake in the world will complete this extraordinary adventure. We will take the time to appreciate the surreal scene surrounding us, enjoying the sunrise above the stunning turquoise lake while watching the brave workers carry huge sulfur blocks on their shoulders up to the crater rim!

Around 6-7 a.m., we will descend from this incredible location and head back to the base camp (altitude of 1,900 m). In the light of the day, you will be able to appreciate the beautiful trail that led to the caldera of the stratovolcano. Filled with its energy and the morning’s unique impressions, we will gently make our way down the slopes of the volcano and enjoy a breakfast specially prepared by a local Javanese family. Following a ferry ride from Java to Bali, we will follow the North road at Bali (Pemuteran and Munduk), then Ubud and our final destination in the South of Bali (arrival at +/- 6 p.m.)

Upon returning, we can guarantee that you will feel physically tired, but that this feeling will quickly pass and give way to the joy of the new memories you will cherish for the rest of your life.

Pack some warm clothes and your adventurous mood, leave your worries behind, get in the car and be prepared for something what surely will be a lifetime experience for you! :) I took the Bromo-Ijen tour with the team and had an excellent experience! All the details were planned and well organised (the schedule, the stops on the way, they provide coats and caps to ensure full comfort, and so on…) We had a new, very good vehicle and an outstanding driver, he is very reliable and driving so smoothly you can sleep whole time on the way:) The food was also very tasty, much above the local standards. On top of these, I do not even have to mention that these places are MUST visit ones, unforgettable experience! The stunning view, the power of the nature will leave you speachless....You will not believe your eyes....Thank you very much Indotravel team for this incredible experience!

On vient de faire un trip de 3 jours pour rencontrer les 2 volcans Bromo et Kawah Ijen, des volcans qui sont dans les 10 volcans actifs au monde que tu peux approcher de très près ! C'était vraiment excellent : super équipe, excellent groupe et le voyage est organisé parfaitement ! Nous avons appris pleins de choses grâce à l'équipe et nous avons rigolé tout le long ! Nos guides sur Kawah Ijen étaient vraiment professionnels et attentionné envers chacun de nous ! Le prix peut paraître gros mais croyez moi c'est un vrai rapport qualité / prix ! Je vous le recommande à 100% Merci à indotravelteam

This 3 days experience was the best choice we've made. After some research, it took us a while to decide whether we would choose Indotravelteam or other cheaper options but now that the trip is over, we can only say we have zero regrets. By choosing Indotravelteam, the only thing you have to do for 3 days is let others guide you and enjoy your adventure to the fullest. Organizing the trip prior the departure was very easy as we talked about everything by emails with Perrick. Emilie from the agency explains everything that you'll do and gives you all the details step by step. Harry, your personal driver, knows the road better than anyone else and makes you feel safe even when he's speeding in the mountains in the middle of the night ;-) All the guides at Bromo and Kawah Ijen are super friendly and helpful. They share all the stories they can about the volcanoes and Indonesian culture. We were concerned about the accomodation since some people wrote bad reviews about them but it was exactly what we needed for 2 VERY short nights. A very simple but clean homestay and a hotel with big and clean rooms as well. Furthermore, after a week on Java, it was the first time for us that we felt confident enough eating typical food. The meals were good and enough, we even had to try a typical Javanese breakfast in a family. And last but not least, how comfortable it is not to negotiate the prices for everything you want to buy for 3 days : food, transport, entrance fees, ... We're backpackers and have planned our entire 3 weeks trip ourselves using public transportation and walking everywhere we go, but letting Indotravelteam lead us among the Eastern side of Java and allow us to enjoy the volcanoes, was the best decision

I did the 3 days 2 night Bromo and Ijen tour after recommendations from some friends of mine and was blown away, not only by the scenery but also by the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff and guides! I was able to organize my tour from Java instead of Bali with no hassle and having a tour which included all the major costs was so worth it! I’m not usually one to pay more to do a tour, but having been there and seen the number of hoops you have to jump through and different things you need to pay for, it was so worth it to pay the sum up front. At Bromo, our guide knew where to take us to get away from the holiday crowds and at Ijen, our guides had a professional system where one guide would go with the fastest hikers and the other would go as slow as the slowest needed to. 100% recommend!
