I am planning to take a half day hike in Franz Josef on Dec 29th ( looks like the tickets are available only for the 10.30AM tour)
After the tour, i am planning to drive down to Wanaka for the night stay...I believe the drive is around 5 hours...do you think it is feasible to drive down to wanaka for the night given that my hike tour will be complete only in the afternoon. I would assume around 1-2PM.
I am coming out of US ...not sure how safe it will be drive down from FJ to Wanaka after the hike tour.
Any insights or alternate suggestions highly appreciated.
