Franz Josef Glacier in December - Weather and Packing

Jump to last reply

dumb question perhaps - I have looked at weather and still trying to figure out how to dress for glacier - We are travelling for 43 days in total.
Leave Dec 4 Auckland to Queenstown (Dec. 25) using the West Coast Nelson to Franz Galcier mountain route then off to Melbourne, Port Douglas and Sydney (Jan 11) so don't want to over pack - looks like weather is ranging from 11 (or less?) to 35!
Will I need boots for the glacier or can I get away with good quality hiking shoes? Really dont want to carry boots for remainder of days if not necessary....
Also Windbreaker and fleece layer underneath or is a windbreaker and light sweather enough??? thanks
