Midnight pickup, at 00:00. You will be picked up at your hotel in Surabaya or at Juanda International Airport Surabaya.
In three to four hours you will be standing at Mt. Pananjakan, one of the highest viewpoints in the vicinity of Mt. Bromo. But, enjoy a coffee break before the sun rises. 
Seeing the sunrise. Slowly giving away the secrets of the night, opening a new horizon. A black sea of sand completed with a savanna and in its midst the relatively small crater of the active volcano Bromo. 
After the sun has risen, get some coffee or tea again. You might feel cold. Then get back to your private Jeep to cross the Sea of Sand. After parking you walk in about 45 minutes to Bromo's crater rim.

Once back at the Jeep, you will be dropped in Cemara Lawang village to change back to your more comfortable private car.
You will be heading to Bondowoso city via Arak-Arak hill.
You can relax in your hotel or take a dive in the swimming pool of the hotel.
