Depending on the weather, a part of the path can become challenging. You will drive through abandoned forests with wonderful views of the valley where we are going.
When you leave the park, you will follow the paved road to the town of Jember. It is an authentic Indonesian city where few Western tourists come. Until late in the evening, there is a cozy vegetable and meat market "Pasar Malam". In the central park "Alun Alun" are several warungs (food stalls) which are simple however very nice. You will spend the night in a modern hotel with swimming pool on the roof.
You will leave Jember and drive south towards the southern coast of East Java. In Teluk Love, you will stop to enjoy a cup of coffee. Near Teluk Love is a beautiful beach where families seek entertainment in the weekends. Next, you will drive to the west via paddy fields and old colonial plantations where the old railway line is still situated, in order to transport the crops of the country.
You will follow this old railway line and drive through little villages to Lumajang. This city is a lot smaller than Jember however if you drive through it, you will notice that everything is happening around the main streets. However, if you take a side street, you straight away leave the town and drive into the rice fields.
After a local lunch, you will proceed with your trip towards the active Bromo Volcano. You will leave Lumajang and drive following a unknown secondary road to the Bromo Tengger in Semeru National Park. Towards the top, the temperature is fresher and the scenery is increasingly more impressive. The changing weather has great influence on these mountains and it can sometimes be warm and then all of a sudden cold/soft.
After you reached the top, you dive back from 2300 metres to the sand sea 8 to 10 kilometers around the Bromo Volcano. Your motorbikes trudge to get to the other side to your hotel. As the hotel is close to the "volcanic playground", the rest of the day, you can take the motorbike to go to the edge of the crater or to run and take a look into it. You will spend the night in Cemaralawang in a simple hotel with good beds and a view of the volcano Bromo.
Optionally, you can go on a early morning trip to see the fantastic sunrise on the Bromo Volcano and Mount Semeru.

Next, you will descend towards the port in order to take the ferry back to Bali. Depending on the tide, you will drive via the beach as much as possible back to Canggu. Canggu offers many tasty little restaurants and bars on the beach, so on your last night, you will enjoy this. Your overnight stay is in the same hotel as at the start of the trip.
You have to pack your suitcase again and you can do some last shopping. Most flights leave in the afternoon so you can relax on the beach or at the pool. Your tour leader will bring you back to the airport.
The riding skill required is mediocre, everybody is able to drive this trip. However, if the weather is bad, it can be tough. Weather has a major impact on the asphalt and dirt roads; this may mean that what was still a passable road last year may now be in poor condition. You will ride on both paved and unpaved roads / paths.
