In brief: Bike
Biking, and mild elliptical machines are exercises that will not aggravate the achilles.
Don't forget to stretch.

In brief: Swim
When people swim, they normally plantarflex their feet.
This takes stress off of the achilles tendon. It helps relax the tendon. Massaging the achilles tendon against the jet-stream from the pool may also help in bringing extra circulation to the tendon allowing it to heal.
