HIKING FOOD PACKAGES

Have the gear but short of time?  Skip the hassle - we'll deliver to your door before you go.

A delicious and easy to prepare food package put together just for you with local foods which are full of great taste and satisfaction, nutrition, and minimal waste helping you pack out as little trash as possible.  We have kept most food items lightweight - but in some instances have compromised a little more weight for a lot more satisfaction!

We will deliver your food package to your accommodation in Queenstown or Te Anau the day before you start walking the track.  Cooking/eating utensils are not included in the food package.  To prepare your food you will need a pot/billy to boil water.  (Gas cookers are provided for your use in the Great Walk huts.)

Check out our NEW Homestyle Kitchen Creations!  You wanted 'homebaking' - well here we are!  Legendary local recipes, coupled with the new age ideas of Monika's Kitchen in Glenorchy.  Ready for you to enjoy in the middle of nowhere!



 


While we do mix things up a little and choose foods best suited, the information below gives you an excellent idea of what you will be eating along the way in our food package.

Breakfast – Tasted our good ol’ kiwi porridge? A classic kiwi tramping necessity to warm your cockles before you set out.  Other options include granola/muesli or scrambled egg and gluten free wraps.

Lunch –  Provided on the middle day(s) of your walk - homemade goodness!  Options: Individual bacon and egg or pork pie, savory muffin or corn fritters.  Plus a piece of fruit, muesli slice or sultana cake.

Snacks –  Cheese, tuna and crackers, salami, trail mix, berry smoothie, fruit, muesli slice, sultana cake, and gingernut biscuits.

Dinner – Simply heat and eat but not freeze dried food. Quick, easy, minimal dishes to tend to, and most of all healthy/tasty, NZ cuisine. ie. Butter Chicken (with rice), Lamb Casserole (with mash), NZ Beef (with mash). Thai Chicken (with rice). Vegetarian options: Spicy Indian curry with rice (ie. Paneer Butter Masala) or Asian noodles with vegetables.

Dessert – Top the day off with something sweet. Dark chocolate and other desserts to share.

Drinks - Tea (Black or Peppermint), coffee or hot chocolate and fruit drink - plus water!*

 

Gluten Free and Vegetarian options available.

*The water along the way is generally fine to drink and absolutely delicious.  Locals have been drinking it for years and there has been no indication that there are any bugs in it.  However this is not guaranteed - the water hasn't been tested so drink it at your own risk.  Having said that - it is likely to be some of the most pure water you can find - as long as you are sensible and use common sense when collecting it!

Loved the food package

I enjoyed using Easyhike to help me do my Routeburn Track hike. You were so helpful every step of the way, even with my itinerary changes, and it was such a pleasure to have my car waiting for me at the end of this rainy day! I loved the food package you put together as well - so many wonderful things to eat! Thank you so much for everything.  Andrea D, USA

High quality equipment

I was a little leery about using rented equipment. What Easyhike provided was very high quality. No different than what I would have brought for myself. The packs were great.  Dave A, USA
