BALI ⇒ JAVA

One of Expedition Bali’s experienced drivers / guides will collect you from the airport or from your Bali accommodation, then drive you to the most western tip of Bali to reach the ferry port of Gilimanuk.

You will have the opportunity to stop and take photographs of the diverse Bali landscapes, from steep rice terraces to stretches of white sand beach; from bustling villages to small farmlands, and, stop at a local warung for lunch along the way.

The ferry ride across the highway that is Ketapang – Gilimanuk waters to the eastern most tip of Java island is a terrific experience, and you will get a sense of the volume of trade that occurs between the Indonesian islands.

The trip to Mount Bromo will continue for about 5-6 hours driving with opportunities to stop and stretch your legs at the white sandy beach in Pasir Putih and to have lunch at a local restaurant in Situbondo or Besuki. On arriving in Mount Bromo, you will settle into your Tengger accommodation for dinner and a rest.

MOUNT BROMO

At around 3.30am, climb aboard your Expedition Java four-wheel drive vehicle and ride up to Mount Pananjakan, on the rim of the Tengger caldera. Your highly experiencedguide will lead you on a short climb to watch the sun rise and reveal the spectacular panorama of Mount Bromo and Mount Semeru, the highest peak in Java. Remember to bring a little cash to warm up with a hot Javanese coffee and some pisang goreng (fried banana).

When you are satisfied with your photo opportunities, your driver and guide will escort you down to the great sea of sand, where you will feel as though you have just driven into a whole new world.

For the truly adventurous, jump onto a horse and ride across the sand plains to the slope of Mount Bromo and climb the stairs until you reach its peak. You can walk if you prefer.

You will be overwhelmed by the volcanic power of Mount Bromo as it hisses, fumes and grumbles while you walk around the rim of the crater and take in the landscapes/  For for the truly adventurous, with no fear of heights, walk the rim of this crater for an incredible photo opportunity.

JAVA ⇒ BALI

Your driver will escort you back to your Tengger accommodation to shower, have breakfast and take a short rest before hitting the road to return to Bali.

The road trip back to Bali will be broken up with a stop for lunch at Situbondo (Java) and another stop for dinner at Lalanglinggah (Bali).  You have the opportunity to have a look at some of the gorgeous sites along the route.  However, you will more than likely want to sleep most of the way back.

You will arrive at your Bali accommodation around midnight of the second day.
