Franz Josef Glacier

had planned to travel by Atomic and arrive in FJ about 2pm on 18th June, but have had to book with Intercity and won't arrive until after 4pm. Is there any way we can get to the glacier just to get a glimpse. we leave at 9am next day. Is there a bus shuttle or maybe taxis?

I can't answer your question, but we've often given rides to backpackers who were walking and/or hitchiking to the glacier.

It gets dark pretty early in June though.

You might contact the visitor's center for a more appropriate answer :)
