Mount Bromo

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.

Fly from Yogyakarta to Surabaya

Singapore Surabaya tourThere are direct flights between Yogyakarta and Surabaya. The route between Yogya and Surabaya, Take a flight from Yogyakarta (Adisutjipto International Airport) to Surabaya (Juanda International Airport) The nearest major airport is in Surabaya (IATA: SUB), three to four hours away by car to Cemoro Lawang Village Mount Bromo.

One thing to keep in mind if you decide to fly is that Surabaya Airport is located far out of the city. It will take you at least 25-30 minutes to reach Surabaya from the airport. If you want to go direct to Bromo on your first night in the city then I’d recommend arranging a car rental to meet you at the airport.

Tip: Warm clothes, simple mask & flashlights and gloves, the weather at bromo almost 0 degrees in the night. you also need to prepare Comfortable shoes for ijen crater because the way to the top is quite hard. not only that to see the blue flame is quite difficult as well. you must go down to the crater. it is the most difficult part where you have to bring mask. the toxic smoke from the crater is very strong. it is very important to prepare flash light for ijen blue flame tour, and do not forget to prepare yourself before to do trekking of the volcanoes. The last one if you want to see a nice spot to see sunrise at bromo. I recommend you to visit Kingkong hill, you can ask to your guide or the driver of 4WD jeep to bring you to kingkong hill. If you visit Penanjakan first poin hill, it is beautiful but there will be a lots of visitor so that it is difficult to see a nice view of sunrise and bromo view. sometime in the weekend you could not see the view. you will only see head of visitors because there will be almost thousand peoples up there. I guaranteed you that you will not see sunrise at the first pananjakan hill. but if you go to kingkong i believe you will get a nice view. but all of that depend on the weather. kingkong hill is spot for photographer to take a nice view of sunrise and view of bromo. only local people and some guide recommend their costumers to go to kingkong hill.

bromo Ijen tour reviewsMari B
Durbanville, South Africa

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 Mount 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

Bromo Ijen Tour From BaliPopittyr

We had a fantastic tour with Mount Bromo Ijen Tours. Devita in their office always replied quickly to our emails and arranged our trip quickly and efficiently even though we contacted them really last minute.
The tour was very well organised with everything clearly explained. Our lovely guide Mr Selamet was so cheery and funny and full of information about the volcanoes and surrounding area and our driver Mr Yusef was the smoothest and most careful driver we’ve experienced so far in Indonesia! The volcanoes themselves were absolutely stunning and well worth the early starts to see the sunrises and the blue fire. Sadly the Ijen crater was closed to tourists due to recent volcanic activity when we were there but you could still see the blue fire from the edge of the crater and it was definitely still worth the trip in my opinion.
The accommodation was basic but ok and the places we stopped for lunch each day served decent and tasty (although not the cheapest) food.
The only downside to it was that the 3day 2night tour starting from Surabaya and ending in Denpasar involved a lot of driving, 4-6 hours each of the 3 days. The tour itinerary clearly stated this so we knew what we were getting ourselves into and were tight for time so we didn’t have much choice but if you had more time I would recommend taking a bit longer to see them, stop for a night somewhere along the way to break it up a bit and then also catch up on sleep in between the two early starts! However if you only have 3 days and you want to see both volcanos then these guys are a good choice to go with. tripadvisor.com

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 Mount 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

Popittyr - Bali Bromo Ijen Bali Tour 3DPopittyr

We had a fantastic tour with Mount Bromo Ijen Tours. Devita in their office always replied quickly to our emails and arranged our trip quickly and efficiently even though we contacted them really last minute.
The tour was very well organised with everything clearly explained. Our lovely guide Mr Selamet was so cheery and funny and full of information about the volcanoes and surrounding area and our driver Mr Yusef was the smoothest and most careful driver we’ve experienced so far in Indonesia! The volcanoes themselves were absolutely stunning and well worth the early starts to see the sunrises and the blue fire. Sadly the Ijen crater was closed to tourists due to recent volcanic activity when we were there but you could still see the blue fire from the edge of the crater and it was definitely still worth the trip in my opinion.
The accommodation was basic but ok and the places we stopped for lunch each day served decent and tasty (although not the cheapest) food.
The only downside to it was that the 3day 2night tour starting from Surabaya and ending in Denpasar involved a lot of driving, 4-6 hours each of the 3 days. The tour itinerary clearly stated this so we knew what we were getting ourselves into and were tight for time so we didn’t have much choice but if you had more time I would recommend taking a bit longer to see them, stop for a night somewhere along the way to break it up a bit and then also catch up on sleep in between the two early starts! However if you only have 3 days and you want to see both volcanos then these guys are a good choice to go with. tripadvisor.com

Bromo Ijen Tour Reviews (Testimonial)

bromo tour reviewSudeepkh
Bengaluru, India

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.
