There are several types of Trip and Expedition Food Services (although we have packed out food for people going to all corners of the earth). For international expeditions please be aware that certain import restrictions may limit what foods you can take with you. We do trip and expedition services for a minimum of three days.

Backcountry Hut Based Trips

Hiking, climbing, skiing and walking are all great adventures in the Canadian Rockies. Most backcountry huts have a reasonable level of facilities including gas stoves, cooking pots, utensils and clean up facilities. The following menu is based on a typical backcountry hut where these facilities are available. In this particular instance we are focused on keeping pack weight low since the food is likely carried in by the individuals.

The following is a sample menu for a 3 day backcountry hut trip. As you can see we provide everything you need for meal preparation and enjoyment.  Menus are available for as many days as needed but this three day menu is designed to give you a sense for the type and quantity of food in this package. The minimum order size for this package is 3 days.

Sample Menu - We will customize your menu after your order is placed.

International Expeditions

These are more complicated than local expeditions but we have provided food for several international trips. When you are concerned about high quality food availability or simply don't have the time to source it locally, we can provide dinners and other food products to ease your planning burden. Please be aware of import restrictions depending on your destination. We have experience packaging food for international travel so we may have some history with your planned destination.

Please call for quotes and information

Day Tripping Lunches

Hotel bagged lunches can be expensive and not ideal for the trail. This is what we do every day. Groups and individuals can get a hearty and trail ready lunch on your way. Requires a minimum of 24 hours notice. Our lunches that you see above would be a typical trail lunch. The only exception is that we include a tetra pack of juice for day pack lunches.

Packed Trail Lunches are typically $17.50 per person per day
