Bali and Java

1st to 10th September 2022

This trip is dedicated to exploring the diverse and incredibly beautiful landscapes of Indonesia. From prehistoric jungles to active volcanoes, stunning beaches to giant waterfalls this destination is inundated with immense photographic potential. 

Bali known as the "Land of the Gods" for its unparalleled natural beauty and diversity. Bali is by far one of the most sought after destinations in Asia. Warm sandy beaches, volcanic mountains, lush tropical forests, spectacular waterfalls and verdant paddy fields offer a plethora of subjects to choose from. For a nature photographer few locations in the world can offer so many opportunities condensed into a single region. A permeative sense of serenity in the setting of a tropical paradise makes it easy to be creative and to generate images that are representative of the mood evoked in such idyllic settings. 

East Java is a photographer's dream come true when it comes to capturing unique landscapes in settings that defy imagination. You will be transported into a world where any direction you point your camera there is a picture to be made. 

 

Activity Level : Moderate. Porters and transportation to top of Mt. Ijen can be arranged if you prefer not to hike. 

We will be spending the first 4 days focused on capturing the landscapes of Bali. This includes multiple iconic locations as well as some hidden gems off the beaten path. The exact itinerary will be shared upon registration. We will be accompanied by local guides who are natives of Bali with extensive knowledge of the local geography. 

The next 4 days will be spent exploring East Java. We will be standing across from an active volcano to capture it at sunrise as fog swirls arounds its base and smoke spews from its summit. Imagine a place with a thousand waterfalls cascading down into the lush gorge. More spectacular than the fictitious Jurassic Park this is where we spend our second day in Java. And for the final adventure we will ascend the iconic Mt. Ijen to take in what National Geographic describes as one of the most unique landscapes of the world. A torquoise sulphur lake surrounded by twisted and sculpted old growth tress and lined with sulphur springs around the caldera. And if we are lucky we will get to witness the unique phenomenon of Blue Lava . As the sulphuric gases emerge from the earth's crust and are exposed to oxygen they ignite to produce the ethereal blue flames around the caldera.
