What you'll do

You will be picked up at either your hotel, Blimbingsari Airport, Ketapang Ferry Terminals or one of the Banyuwangi train stations. I will show you around town, grab a meal at one of Banyuwangi's local restaurants to savor authentic local dishes. Depending on the time you wish to start your Ijen hike we can catch the Blue Fire as well as the sunrise. For this you will need to start your hike a little after midnight. Later morning hikes along the Ijen tracks are beautiful too! You will be amazed about the local flora and fauna and in sharp contrast how the local miners carry their sulfur from the crater. After a hike, I will bring you to the sulfur processing site to explain how the sulphur is processed and into what products.
