High Altitude Whisky Bar

Fine whiskies, superb scenery and a tiny alpine hut perched on a high mountain saddle — The Bad Decision is an exclusive retreat reserved for a select few.

From Mackenzie Helicopters Lake Tekapo base, embark on a stunning scenic flight deep into the Southern Alps, a majestic snow-topped wilderness of New Zealand’s longest glaciers and tallest peaks. The flight to The Bad Decision soars past ‘the cloud piercer’ — majestic Aoraki/Mount Cook — before setting down beside the little red hut.

Whisky on ice or neat? Settle in, savour the moment with your choice tipple, and listen to the gentle whisper of the mountains. A selection of fine whiskies, pure mountain air, 360-degree vistas, and the world at your feet.
