AJ Hackett SkyWalk & SkyJump
If you can afford it this is a good alternative to bungy jumping or skydiving. It's an epic 10 second free fall to the landing pad at the bottom which pulls you down. Awesome views and well worth the adrenaline rush

Bay of Islands
Paddle boarding -- This is so much fun and pretty cheap to. Pretty easy to get the hang of otherwise just sit and enjoy the sunshine and water. Double or singles are usually availble and can be found along most waterfronts.

Abel Tasman National Park
You can go kayaking almost anywhere in New Zealand. Try Abel Tasman or Lake Wanaka to Marlborough Sounds and Queenstown! You'll often find people on the shores with trailers ready to hire them out

Franz Josef Glacier
This is the best way to Helicopter Landing -- see New Zealands Alps if you can't mountaineer. There's lots to pick from with heaps of different price ranges. A snow landing is the best, landing on top of a mountain is pretty surreal. Take a camera and sit back in awe!
