Full description
Embark on an exciting and unforgettable midnight hike up Ijen Volcano leaving from Bali and trust that this 24-hour adventure is worth the time. Begin your trek in pitch-black darkness and reach the crater in time to see the world's largest blue flame area, rising up to 16 ft. Hike back down as the sun rises and take in panoramic views of the magnificent natural surroundings.  The trip begins with pickup from your hotel and then a 4-hour drive to Gilimanuk Port, where the ferry for Java departs. Arrive at Ketapang, and go out for dinner to get energy for the hike. After your meal, set off for Mount Ijen’s blue fire, and arrive an hour and a half later at the base of the mountain. By midnight, the trek to the summit will start. The trek up will take around two hours. At the first stop, enjoy a spectacular view of the night sky and a photographer will teach you how to take photos of the stars. Head down to the Ijen Crater, which will take another 40 minutes. After a rocky path down to the bottom of the crater, see from a distance the mesmerizing electric blue fire from the volcano’s lava. Going back to the crater’s rim, be greeted by the breathtaking view of the sunrise overlooking the surrounding scenery. The trek will end at a local warung to eat breakfast before returning to Bali and your hotel.

This was one of the highlights of my first visit to Indonesia. This hike is very challenging. Take your time. The blue fire, sulfur, and midnight sky are amazing to to see this lifetime. Our drivers were very accomdating to our time concerns since we had to be back earlier. Our hiking leader assisted much of the hike down the crater. The views at the mountain tops are amazing. WEAR PROPER HIKING SHOES PLEASE.

Cumplieron todo lo anunciado y más, incluyendo cena y comida que indicaba que no estaba incluida, en cambio curiosamente el desayuno que sí que indicaba no lo pusieron, pero el cambio nos favoreció. Buen conductor y fantástico guía. Único que mejoraría fue el coche, quizás muy pequeño para un trayecto tan largo. Realmente solo recomiendo esta excursión a quien le sea imposible pasar noche en Java, es matadora, 19 horas sin dormir por la noche, con más de 10 horas de coche es una locura. Y recordad que no está garantizado el verlo.

Wir (Paar, mitte 30) haben nach vielen Überlegungen für die Tour entschieden - und nicht bereut. Gusti, unser Fahrer, war pünktlich, konnte gut englisch und hat uns schnell aber sicher begleitet und uns vieles erklärt. Er hat sich viel Mühe gegeben, was uns beruhigt hat. Unser Guide, Andi, war ein ehemaliger Schwefel-Arbeiter mit viel Erfahrung. Er war mit unserer Gruppe (4 Personen) sehr rücksichtsvoll, hilfsbereit beim Abstieg, hatte Gasmasken für uns, konnte gut englisch und machte gerne für uns Fotos. Der Anstieg zum Gipfel war ein gut laufbarer, steiler Weg. Wir haben regelmäßig Pausen eingelegt. Der Abstieg zum Krater war sehr felsig, man benötigt trittsicherheit, hier kanalisieren sich etwas die Touristen. Wir sahen Schwefel-Arbeiter bei der Arbeit. Unten wurden wir mit tollen Motiven belohnt. Entgegen der Erwartung gab es nur eine "fließende" blue fire Stelle, die wir aber aus nächster Nähe begutachten und fotografieren durften. Fazit: die Tour hat unseren Urlaub bereichert.
