What to Expect

Day 1: Jakarta to Carita Beach

Meet at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, or a pre-arranged location for the transfer to Carita Beach. Outside peak traffic times, this should take approximately three hours. Check in to your hotel and relax after your journey.

Day 2: Snorkel Rakata, Trek and Camp on Anak Krakatau

After breakfast at the hotel, you’ll hop on a high-powered speed boat trip across the Sunda Strait. You’ll snorkel nearby Rakata, where you may well come across a Nemo.

After snorkelling, you’ll cruise across to Anak Krakatau. After setting up camp, you’ll trek its banks up to the peak. You’ll be able to see the moody volcano spit molten rocks before descending back to camp for a freshly cooked dinner. That evening, you’ll be free to relax by the campfire and star gaze. Weather permitting, the night’s sky will be incredible.

Day 3: Anak Krakatau to Soekarno-Hatto Airport

At the crack of dawn, you’ll ascend Anak Krakatau on a different route. You’ll have a gorgeous, panoramic view of the Ujung Kulon National Park, before descending for breakfast.

Before packing up the tent, you’ll be free to swim or snorkel at a different, more remote spot. When you are satisfied, you’ll hop back on the speed boat to sail back to Carita beach, where you’ll be transferred back to Soekarno-Hatto International Airport, or wherever you have agreed with your guide.

Accommodation

Your hotel on Carita Beach is comfortable yet basic. Your rooms have air-conditioning facilities, hot showers, tea and coffee facilities, and a TV. The hotel also has a swimming pool and a billiard room. It is the perfect place to relax, and feel like you are really getting away from it all.

Location

Krakatau is part of the ‘Ring of Fire,’ a section of fault lines that stretches through Japan and south-east Asia.

When Krakatau blew itself apart in 1883, it was one of the world’s greatest and the most catastrophic eruptions. For centuries Krakatau had been a familiar nautical landmark for much of the world’s maritime traffic which was funneled through the narrow Sunda Strait. At 10 am on 27 August 1883 Krakatau erupted with the biggest bang ever recorded on earth. As the volcano collapsed into the sea, giant tsunamis swept over the nearby shores of Java and Sumatra, and more than 40.000 people killed.

On August 11, 1930, a new volcano and island appeared. This new volcano and island are called ‘Anak Krakatau’ (Child of Krakatoa). The island of Anak Krakatoa is a national park, and has been the site of some spectacular eruptions even in recent times.
