Krakatau Volcano Special

- expedition to study & observe Anak Krakatau volcano and its activity -

3 days/nights on Krakatau

Note:
We generally organise this expedition when Anak Krakatau is in eruption, but can also arrange such a trip as private tour when the volcano is sleeping.
Depending on our travelers wishes and the volcano's activity, the itinerary of each tour date varies with 2, 3 or 4 full days/nights on Krakatau. We can also customise the start (airport pick up and transfer to west coast on Day 1) and end (returning from Krakatau to the west coast and back to Jakarta on the last day) of our itinerary. Please contact us through tours@volcanodiscovery.com for more information!
