Day 01. Flight from Jakarta to Banyuwangi

Early morning you will fly with Garuda from Jakarta to Surabaya, where you transfer to Banyuwangi. Early morning Garuda offers three flights from Jakarta to Surabaya; namely 05:30, 06:30, and 07:50. Meet Banyuwangi in the morning and a driver is waiting for you to bring you to your hotel. You spend the night in the luxurious hotel Ijen Resort and Villas at the southeastern slope of the Ijen crater. After checking in, it is a short drive to the Ijen Plateau, where you can enjoy the surroundings and visit the coffee plantation.
Please, check the availability at the website of Garuda if you wish

Day 02. Ijen Crater Lake - Cemara Lawang near Mt. Bromo

An early breakfast with a cup of tea or coffee is waiting for you. Hereafter, we drive to Paltuding from where you start hiking to the Ijen Crater Lake. It is just a three kilometer hike to the Ijen crater Lake, but it takes at least one hour because of the steep slopes. The one hour hike is more than worth it: a scenic and colourful landscape. Besides, you can meet a lot of sulfur miners carrying loads as heavy as 80 kilograms on their shoulders. After you fully enjoyed the crater of Ijen, we drive in about four to five hours to the beach Pasir Putih. Here you can stretch your legs and have lunch. After lunch we continue via Probolinggo to the village Cemara Lawang. The estimated time of arrival is around seven o'clock in the evening.

Day 03. Sunrise Mt. Bromo – Drop Surabaya

It is very early if we wake you up. It is around three o'clock in the morning if you want to see the sun rise over the special landscape. You have coffee or tea before leaving to Pananjakan (2,770 meters) by car. After sunrise, you can descend to the Sea of Sand. Enjoy that special moment, get out of the car before you ask the driver to park the car at the parking area. From here you will have to walk about 45 minutes to the top of the crater rim of the active volcano Bromo. We will meet you at the car, when you are ready. You will be brought back to your hotel to have breakfast. Before you know it is time to get to Surabaya. We can either drop you in a hotel or at the airport (Juanda, if you have a flight after 14.00).
