Some people believe that “good enough” will do when it comes to backcountry food. We respectfully disagree!
The Yamnuska Backcountry Kitchen operates from our commercial facility in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. We offer a full range of backcountry food services and a wide variety of packaged-to-order dehydrated dinner entrées prepared by our professional kitchen team.
