We are a group of 4-5 people just arrived from India to Wellington for a 2 year stay
We are planning to do some adventure sports over the long Easter weekend
We are planning to stay for 5 nights in a hostel type accommodation, if available or else a hotel as we just need a place to sleep.
The main adventures we are looking for is Para gliding, Sky diving, white river rafting, 1 day hiking etc. in addition to what the city has to offer
Which would be a better VFM destination for us ?
Queenstown or Taupo ?
Secondly can we easily drive down from Wellington to Taupo in a hired car ?
(Is it recommended ? Is the route very hilly and treacherous ?)
