HIKING FOOD PACKAGES

Have the gear but short of time?  Skip the hassle - we'll deliver a personalized hiking food package 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, however if this isn't your style you can choose our heat and eat meals which weigh just a wee bit more.

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 (unless you have booked this as part of our handy Essentials or Premium Packages).  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 however no other cooking/eating utensils or plates.)


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.  Options include bacon and egg pie or savory muffins, fresh fruit, muesli slice or fruit cake.

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

Dinner – We provide you a choice of quick, easy and most of all healthy/tasty NZ cuisine!  There is a range to choose from that includes heat and eat or freeze dried (nice and light!) food.  Some options include Butter Chicken, Wild Mushroom and Lamb Risotto and Thai Green Chicken Curry. Great vegetarian and gluten free options also!

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

Drinks - Tea (black or green), 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!

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

Routeburn Track with Easyhike

We traveled from California to do the hike - and could not possibly have been able to manage it as easily, if at all, without the amazing services offered by Bobbie and her team at Easyhike. They reduced the logistics of the trip to virtually zero for us: Delivering rucksacks with absolutely everything we'd need or want, from rain gear and sleeping bags to food and first aid kits, right to our hotel the day before the hike. They also arranged to move our car from the start to the finish, so it was awaiting us when we got there. Literally all we had to do was dress and show up. The whole adventure was amazing - and if you have even an inkling that this might be something you'd enjoy, then DON'T HESITATE!! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience...  David L January 2018

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

Must Do Great Walk!

A truly memorable experience. A mixture of weather conditions, but it didn't spoil the breathtaking scenery! I did the track over 3 days, finishing at The Divide. Stayed in DOC huts, that were all very clean. I also chose to use a food package from EasyHike company which delivered to my accommodation in Queenstown the day before my hike. Totally hassle free, great food options, plenty of food, light to pack and carry. I was very happy. A must do Great Walk! Kit Y April 2018
