Bromo Ijen Tour From Yogyakarta
Bromo Ijen Tour From Yogyakarta | Yogyakarta to Bromo Car Rental, A road trip through Java is a real holiday adventure. The best route to take if you plan to drive from Yogyakarta to Bromo is to go to Cemoro Lawang Village Mount Bromo. The first part of the journey from Yogyakarta through to Solo is along a busy main road. However, once you get past Solo the trip becomes a lot more interesting and the countryside can be really spectacular. The area around Tawangmangu is one of the highlights of the trip. The area is in the highlands. The hills are covered with deciduous forest and the farmland is rich and fertile (you can buy fresh strawberries from the roadside stalls, which make for a tasty and healthy snack).
Mount Bromo or Bromo Volcano of indonesia called (Gunung Bromo) this name of Bromo derived from javanese pronunciation of Brahma the Hindu Creator God, is an active Volcano in East Java Indonesia. Mount Bromo, one of the top travel destinations in East Java Indonesia, is an active volcano situated in a surreal but spectacular massive caldera. While very busy with tourists, almost to the point of being a put-off at the sunrise viewpoints, it is definitely still worth a visit. The active volcano sits inside the gargantuan Tengger caldera – with a total diameter of around 10 km – and is surrounded by the Laut Pasir (Sea of Sand) that’s made up of fine volcanic sand. The overall setting is a sight to see – serene and beautifully other-wordly in stark comparison to the lush green valleys that surround the caldera.
How long from yogyakarta to bromo?
It takes about 11 hours to drive from Yogyakarta to Cemoro Lawang. Most tourists will stay overnight at a hotel in Cemoro Lawang Village Bromo and then leave early in the morning at about 03:30 Am to go to Mt Bromo for sunrise. This is a nice option, not only do you get a private driver who will take you where you want to go, it’s also a great way to see the countryside of Java. However, be warned all this driving is tiring.
While it is possible to drive from Yogyakarta to Surabaya and then to Bromo the route doesn’t really make much sense. Not only is it a longer drive, but there’s less to see on the way, many of our costumers feel bored so we suggest you to take a train/Flight From Yogakarta to Surabaya then from Juanda International Aiport Surabayba, We can help you to arrange your trip.
Yogyakarta To Bromo By Train
You can also take a plane to Surabaya, but time-wise train is almost as good and much less hassle. My recommendation is to somehow book the train in advance (you cannot book without Indonesian CC so will have to pay a commission to a hotel, tour operator etc) in my opinion worth it if you don’t want to end up in Bisniss Class (which is 2nd class). Executive class has air con (to excess) and very comfy seats (well, we only had a look at them, didn’t get the chance to actually sit on them). Yogya Surabaya journey is 4 hours (maybe a tad longer if the train is late).
A Bromo tour to arriving in Yogya- it’s best to use companies based in Surabaya or Malang that have local knowledge and contacts. We are very reliable. We can pick you up from Surabaya station or aiport.
Best way to get from Yogyakarta to Bromo
There’s no ‘best way’ to go from Yogyakarta to Bromo. If you’re on a tight itinerary I’d recommend flying from Yogyakarta to Surabaya and then arranging a car rental to take you to Bromo and Ijen. If you have the tim, however, a road trip through Java is a great experience.

Bromo Ijen Traval Guide (FAQ)
Testimonial & Reviews
We were a family of three who travelled on a 3 night tour of Bromo/ Ijen from 22nd to 25th April. We had trouble deciding on a tour operator since all websites give out the same information and look similar. We sent out an initial mail to ijenbromotours.com and received a prompt reply from Devita. Devita replied to all our queries about the itinerary and the costing patiently and even managed to change our hotel bookings to get us the accommodation we requested since we had a eleven year old daughter travelling with us( Jiwa Jawa resort Bromo and Ijen Resort ). the tour cost had to be transferred upfront and the remaining had to be paid to the guide. We were received at the Surabaya train station by our guide Mr. Slamet and our driver Mr. Irfan. Mr. Irfan was a quiet, smiling and capable driver. Mr. Slamet was extremely friendly and patient throughout the tour. He made sure our tour went off without a hitch in spite of a chaotic and busy weekend full of tourists at the Bromo crater even ditching the four wheel drive halfway through the Bromo climb to arrange for Ojeks(local bike taxis) for us to reach the viewpoint just before sunrise. Though the clouds masked the sunrise the view from the top was breathtaking. We even crossed the sea of sand to reach the rim of the Bromo crater. To peek into the bowels of the earth was a surreal experience. From there was a six hour drive to Ijen and an early morning (1 AM ) three hour trek to the Ijen crater to see the blue fire. Mr. Slamet had thoughtfully brought along good quality gas masks for all of us. He was happy for us at our delight on seeing the blue fire. At the end of the tour they dropped us off at the ferry port even ensuring that a person accompanied us on the ferry journey to the port in Bali where a taxi was waiting to transfer us to Bali airport. We would recommend GWI travels for anyone looking for a reliable tour operator for the Bromo Ijen tour.

Ijen Bromo Tours, based in Banyuwangi, created a great 5-day travel package for us.
Gigeh & Devita have been amazing in communicating and arranging a once in a lifetime adventure for us!
From the start of requesting quotes and information, the booking process, pre-payment, our guide and driver, the itinerary and sights – right till the end when we were dropped at our hotel in Bali… everything ran super smooth and we were looked after very well.
We were met by our driver (Mr Usup) and our (very well) English speaking guide (Mr Slamet) at our hotel in Surabaya.
Our journey DAY 1 took us to the Madakaripura Waterfall and on to our hotel in Bromo. We were made aware in advance that accommodation in these remote areas are basic, so nothing ever came as a bad surprise.
DAY 2 we saw the sun rise – a spectacular view of Mt Bromo, and then drove over the caldera and climbed to the rim of Mt Bromo. This was the highlight of my whole Java trip.
We then drove to Kalibaru Highlands and spent a lovely day at the Margo Utomo Agro Resort. The next morning, DAY 3, we travelled to Sukumade … a 4-hour rough 4WD journey that took us through rivers and valleys to reach the Ranger’s accommodation in a very remote area. The accommodation here is VERY basic, but the experience of seeing the Green Turtles laying their eggs on the beach at night, and releasing the Tukik (baby turtles) the next morning, makes it all worth while. Day 4, Our last stretch was to Ketapang Indah Hotel in Banyuwangi (more modern 3* resort by the beach). We spent most of the day catching up on sleep, as we needed to meet our guide and driver at 12H30 to depart for our Kawah Ijen Blue Flame tour – another once in a lifetime experience. After our Kawah Ijen experience, we were taken back to the hotel to enjoy breakfast, freshen up and check out. DAY 5 we were transported and assisted right to the ferry to Gilimanuk. At Gilimanuk we were met by the transport provider who drove us for 4 hours (with a lunch stop) to our hotel in Ubud.
Ijen Bromo Tours arrange all this for us and we were very pleased. Great service, good value and trustworthy!
Thank you Gigeh, Devita, Mr Usup & Mr Slamet – you provided us with an experience of a lifetime. Find it on: tripadvisor
