Ijen Tour Inquiry: Any recommendation?

Hi,

I am planning a tour to Kawah Ijen.

I will arrive at Surabaya Airport at AM 09:10, 01 May

and have to get to Yogyakart by the evening on 03 May.

And I am a solo traveller.

I think "Surabaya-Ijen-Bromo-Yogyarkarta" route would be great for me.

Also I think I can manage to get to Banyuwangi by myself on 01 May.

Is there any recommendation for agencies or ways to make this tour possible?

Hi there..

Your plan is feasible.. But would you consider about going to Banyuwangi all by yourself?

I know there's a straight train from Surabaya to Banyuwangi.. But please be concern of where you're gonna spend the night, and how are you gonna reach Paltuding (hiking post for Ijen)..

Becasue from Banyuwangi (Ketapang area) to Paltuding takes about 1 hour drive.. And if you stay at the hotel downtown (Ketapang), you might need to take their jeep rent to reach Paltuding (~ IDR 700.000,-)

Travel agents charge usually already including shuttle from Surabaya - Banyuwangi - Ijen - (Bromo) - Surabaya..

But since you're a solo traveler, i guess the price will be higher.. Unless you can find agents that have a group tour..

So better weighing some option before you're departing.. :)

Very likely, you take the first step toward Bungurasih by Damri Bus and the second step take Bus toward Probolinggo, Probolinggo you have to carefully choose a tour agency, because around the bus terminal there are many tour agents who will offer you to go to Bromo-Ijen Crater and back to Probolinggo (Which I know cost about IDR 700,000 = 1 night stay at Bromo Hotel, 1 night stay at Ijen Homestay, transportation, Jeep 4x4WD sharee), then in the afternoon on the 3rd you can use Logawa Trains departing from Surabaya at 7 pm (5 hours later you arrive at Yogyakarta )

I hope it can help you

Warm regards
