We offer an exciting 3 day tour to mount Bromo, Ijen mountain and Baluran National Park in east Java.
We need a minimum of 3 days for this tour and it could look like this (however, we will adjust this to your personal wishes):
We pick you up at 07.00 am in the morning to drive to Gilimanuk harbour about 3 hours drive from Amed, to cross Bali to Java Island for 25 minutes by ferry. Lunch at local restaurant in Watudodol, Banyuwangi then a long drive about 5 hours to get to Bromo. We will have plenty of photo opportunities during this ride. Arrive late afternoon at hotel in Bromo and overnight.
At about 03.30 am we drive to Mount Penanjakan to see sun rise and then return back to Mount Bromo through sandy road and step up the stair which lead up to the rim of the volcano, the steps are about 250 steps up to the top. After enjoying the beautiful view we’ll go back to the hotel for breakfast and checkout.
Another long drive ahead to Baluran National Park to see wild pigs, buffalos, wild cows, deers, birds, wild cats, monkeys and many more. Note that because these animals live in the wild in the park, it’s not guaranteed we will spot them all. After visiting Baluran national Park we continue to drive to Banyuwangi or to the foothill of mount Ijen to get a hotel for overnight.
We drive you through coffee and cloves plantations to the foothill of Ijen mountain to the starting point where we begin 90 minutes hike to the top of volcano crater along shaded path. Along the smokey lake shore, you will see miners bring yellow sulphur ore in a bamboo basket of 80 kilos or more down the hill along the treacherous path. After exploring the crater then walk down to Banyuwangi for your lunch. Then cross to Bali by ferry. Arrive at hotel in Bali late afternoon.
The east Java trip can be extended to more days. Please contact us for prices.
