Full description

Start your tour with pickup from either Bali or Banyuwangi and take in the beautiful sunrise over Ijen Crater. For those traveling from Bali, start your tour in the evening by making your way to Ketapang Port in Banyuwangi. Once you have arrived at Ketapang Port, relax at the lounge before getting picked up by your team and continue to Ijen Volcano. For those traveling from Banyuwangi, enjoy pickup from your accommodations at 12:30 AM and travel to Ijen Volcano to start your hike. Take in the scenery during your 1.5-2-hour hike to the Ijen Crater viewpoint and admire the views from the top.

On a clear day, you can see the volcano's mystical blue fire, which is a truly unique experience. Catch the sunrise over the largest acid lake on Java Island and appreciate the local miners carrying sulfur rock as part of their daily life to provide for their families. After exploring the volcano, trek down and back to the parking lot. For those staying in Banyuwangi, you will return to your hotel around 9:00 AM. Those traveling back to Bali will return to their accommodations in the afternoon.

It was the best adventure of our whole journey! Everything was good prepared for us and the pick up at our hotel was on time. We had such a nice and funny time with our guide. The view with sunrise was breathtaking. We definitely recommend.
