family holiday in the south island with an active 10 yr old

we are spending two weeks in the south island in January. We need to keep our ten year old boy active and interested while still enjoying some of the things that adults like to do. We would appreciate an intenary and any suggestions about better hotels. Thanks in advance.

I know you've asked for recommendations for better hotels, but have you considered going to a holiday park? Many offer tourist units so you don't need to be in a tent or campervan (but you should book ahead). I mention it because at that time of year there will be heaps of kids around. Your boy would have a blast.
