This tour is regularly offered and accompanied either by a volcanologist (usually Tom) from our team and/or by our partner, Krakatau specialist and photographer Oystein Lund Andersen who lives in Jakarta and uses most of his weekends to travel to volcanoes in Indonesia.
During this physically EASY expedition, you have the unique chance to experience one of the world's most beautiful and powerful volcanoes. Depending on which date, we spend 2-4 full days and nights on and around Krakatau volcano and stay in in a beautiful camp on one of the islands.
Watching Krakatau's fireworks when it is active is truly spectacular and we can go to various viewpoints on Anak Krakatau and neighboring islands as well from a chartered boat at our disposal.
Even when there is no eruption, the crater of Krakatau and its lunar surroundings, its fumaroles, the frozen lava flows, spectacular pumice cliffs of what remains of the island complex destroyed in 1883, hot springs, coral reefs and many other highlights make this a perfect trip if you like a volcano extension out from Jakarta.
Krakatau's fantastic exotic setting combined with the luxury of pleasant baths, beaches, fresh seafood and excellent organization from our experienced local crew round out the trip.
