Kawah Ijen Blue Fire Tour from Canggu Bali
IJen Blue Fire Tour
Canggu is located in the southwest of Bali, it’s about an hour’s drive from Kuta Bali and 30 minutes from the Denpasar area. Canggu becomes the most famous place for hipsters and younger tourists that want to explore Bali in their style. So many cute and cool beach bars, cafes, and restaurants. For accommodations, there are so many expensive, luxurious villas or hotels and many affordable ones. So Canggu has the best things to offer.
The tourist attractions in Bali are not many, there are only some beaches to chill, surf, or just watch the sunset and some yoga studios for Yoga lovers. For a day trip, they must go to Ubud or some other areas in Bali.
For this point, we try to offer something different than just the beach. We have a midnight trip to visit the most amazing volcano in East Java that is very accessible from Bali, especially Canggu and you just need less than 24 hours to conquer it. For detail of the itinerary and the cost, you can check on the itinerary and price tab.

Kawah Ijen Blue Fire Tour from Canggu will start around 7:00 PM, our driver will pick you up from your hotel in Canggu then drive for about 4 - 5 hours to Gilimanuk Ferry Port, it’s the harbor where you can go to Java Island. The ferry will take around ± an hour (it depends on the weather, sometimes it’s longer).
Upon your arrival at Ketapang Ferry Port Banyuwangi (it’s a port in Java Island), you will be met by our local guide and heading to Paltuding (it’s the parking place and also the start point before trekking to Kawah Ijen, the ride takes around an hour from the Banyuwangi. Upon your arrival in Paltuding, you should be prepared for the night trekking such as a torchlight, jacket, and gas masks.
The trekking will take around 2 hours until the top of Kawah Ijen. Upon your arrival on the top of Kawah Ijen, you should go down to the crater to see the most famous natural phenomenon in Indonesia, blue fire is a Hydrogen sulfate gas that comes out from the volcano in Kawah Ijen that meets oxygen in the air. It’s only available to be seen in the darkness. Besides the natural phenomenon of blue fire, you will see some miners who work there, they are taking sulfur rock from the volcano. It’s one of the hardest jobs there. After capturing a thousand photos of blue fire and sulfur mining, we have gone up to catch the most stunning sunrise in East Java and you can see the astonishing landscape of Kawah Ijen.
