In order to book the train tickets on this trip we require your full passport details at time of booking, or at the latest 45 days prior to travel.

This trip involves a fair amount of hiking and cycling. A moderate level of fitness will help you to get the most out of this trip.
Java is one of the largest islands in Indonesia, and this trip covers a lot of ground. Travel times can be long and delays are common. Where suitable, you’ll travel by train instead of drive, which will make the journey more comfortable.
It’s important not to make your bags too heavy, as you will be expected to carry them onto and off trains, and walk them short distances. Porters are available in most stations at an extra charge.
Accommodation at Seloliman Nature Reserve, and near Mt Bromo is in basic guesthouses. Set on the edge of a tropical forest the Seloliman Reserve embraces philosophies of environmental education, and we are sure you will get a good nights sleep. The next night close to the base Mt Bromo our guesthouse is selected for it’s location. Our stay is short, as we awake very early the next day for our sunrise hike.
Dress standards in Java are more conservative than in other areas of Indonesia. Show your respect by covering your knees and shoulders when visiting temples. It’s a great idea to bring your own sarong.
Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveller. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it’s important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Visas can take several weeks to process, so familiarise yourself with any requirements as soon as you have booked your trip to allow for processing time and costs.
We recommend 230 € for meals not included during the trip.
A Single Supplement to have your own room is available on this trip and excludes nights 8 & 9 (small guesthouse accommodation) where you will be in shared accommodation.
