Hiking on the glaciers of the south island. They really are spectacular.
If you don't want to hike on the glaciers just seeing them from the ground is amazing. Walk through the canyons which they carved out up to the blue and white facades. To think how long this ice has been there is incredible.

Directions: Franz Joseph Glacier is on the east coast of the south island. Quite a long way from anywhere but worth the trip.
