During this part of the journey your own driver will bring your luggage to Yogyakarta and you will meet with him in the hotel. Depending on the traffic he might arrive later than you so bring your essentials along on the train. Overnight in Yogyakarta.

We start the day with a 1,5 hour drive to the famous Borobudur temple where you have time enough to explore this fantastic monument. On our return we stop at the Mendut temple. Back at the hotel you could choose to relax or perhaps you’d rather stroll down Malioboro street or take a becak ride. The choice is yours. Overnight in Yogyakarta

Day 6 :  YOGYAKARTA – SOLO

In the morning we start our drive to Solo. There you have the option to make a bike or andong (horse cart) tour to the village of Mojolaban in the south east of Solo (These tours are not Including in the charge of your package). There you will be able to see what Solonese do for a living. We will visit several home industries where you will see how tempe (bean cake) is made, as well as tofu, gamelan (tradition instrument), roof tiles and arak (Javanese wine).

Day 7 : SOLO – MALANG ( Train )

Today is your second opportunity for an exciting train ride. You take the morning train to Solo from Malang. Overnight in Malang.

Day 8 : MALANG – BROMO

In the morning we drive to Tumpang town. There you change to an open jeep for an adventurous trip through forest, savanna, hills and finally the caldera (large vulcanic crater) before you arrive at Cemoro Lawang (the last village near Mount Bromo). Once you arrive at your hotel you can already enjoy the stunning panorama or just relax. As this unusual and spectacular approach to Bromo is only accessible for 4 wheel drive jeeps, your driver who will also take your luggage luggage will take a different, but longer, route. Therefor he will arrive a bit later than yourself. Overnight in Cemoro Lawang Village

Day 9 : BROMO – KETAPANG / KALIBARU

After a very early rise you can go for another jeep excursion to the Bromo volcano to enjoy views of the crater. Instead of driving directly to the crater you also have the option to visit the viewpoint at Pananjakan first where, if the weather is clear, you can witness a spectacular sunrise (In order to see the sunrise the tour starts at 04:00 am. For this nightly excursion we would like to recommend a thick jacket (warm clothing) since at times the temperature can drop to 5 degrees Celcius). When you return to your hotel from this spectacular excursion, you can enjoy a well deserved breakfast after which we will bring you to Ketapang. Overnight in Ketapang.

Day 10 : KALIBARU / KETAPANG  – BALI

After Breakfast your driver will bring you to Banyuwangi where you will board a ferry for the short crossing to Bali  (Pemuteran / Lovina). It is time to say goodbye to you and we hope you enjoyed your journey across Java.
