What To Expect

Ijen Crater
The trekking will take about 1 – 2 hours, depending on your fitness. Upon your arrival at the top of the crater, you will be invited to see the most famous natural phenomenon of blue fire. It’s only 2 in the world, in Ijen Crater, Indonesia and Dallol Volcano, Ethiopia. But to see closer, you must go down into the crater of Ijen. It’s pretty dangerous, so if you feel doubt to go down, we suggest to stay on the top while waiting for the sunrise.

At about 6 am, you will see the best view of Mount Ijen, which is the turquoise color of the acid lake that makes the view more incredible.

We had a hiking to the Ijen Mountain with guide Andre. The guide was very nice and extremely friendly. We had very exciting expirience at top of the mountain with amazing view of sunrise and sulfuric lake.
Highly recommend the tour and the guide.
Amazing experience !

We had an amazing experience with Andre as our tour guide! He was super nice and very flexible with when we wanted to go up. He picked us up at our hotel with his great driver - Bams - and the car ride was very smooth. While it is true that the way up is quite long and steep (feel free to take little breaks if you need it), the conversation with Andre was great and we made it to the top before we even realised it. Andre made sure we felt comfortable all the way. The views were breathtaking at sunrise and the Ijen lake and smoke were awe-inspiring. We would 100% recommend this tour! It’s a once in a lifetime experience, don’t miss it!
Incredible views + amazing guide

I had the best time hiking Mount Ijen for sunrise with my guide, Andre! Java Adventure Trail arranged everything needed for the trek from Bali to Java (i.e. ground transport, ferry service, etc.). It's certainly an all day adventure but definitely worth it for the views!

Andre, my guide, was extremely personable and just a good time! The hike is a bit steep in the beginning, but again, the view from the top of the crater is incredible.

You'll pass by some of the miners on your way up and down. They are seriously the strongest humans with a terribly tough job. If you don't feel up to the hike, there are a few miners standing by that will literally pull you to the down or wheel-barrel you down.

Highly recommend this adventure and this group!
