Fiji Island Hopping Itinerary (10 Days)

In this itinerary, Julie and I took a tropical vacation during the holiday season between Christmas and New Years in Fiji. Something really quirky about this trip was that we flew out on the evening of Christmas Eve and we landed in Fiji on Boxing Day. That's right, we completely missed out on Christmas Day as we crossed over the international date line while we were asleep on the plane! Speaking of the plane, it was also one of the emptiest flights we had ever been on as there were quite a few empty or sparsely populated rows throughout. Anyways, our trip covered three islands - Viti Levu, Matamanoa, and Taveuni. We were able to go waterfalling on the first and third islands. The second island was purely a resort on its own island. This trip was a combination of self driving and organized tours.

The one thing that struck Julie and I most about this trip was the friendliness of the Fijian people. I think it still stuck with us to this day the level of hospitality we were extended when visiting local joints as well as a local village that we toured as part of a river excursion. And finally, since we were just west of the International Date Line, we were one of the first people to welcome the New Year, which was kind of cool! The table below summarizes what we were able to do in our week spent in the Fijian Islands.
