We are now offering freshly prepared meals on our Kokoda Track tours and our Beachheads tours. We have staff that have undergone cooking training and are ready to cook up culinary delights for you while on our tours.
Some of our other tours, for example our Black Cat tour, will still be receiving our ration packs. Please see an example below of a days food pack - you will receive one of these packs for each day you are trekking. In addition to this we serve up cooked rice at dinner time. There will also be fresh rations provided during the trek! What we find that most of our groups end up doing is putting all of their Back Country meals in together. This combined with a side dish of rice and fresh veggies makes for an outstanding meal, with some stops the cooks will prepare fresh bread. Every morning, and at lunch and dinner hot water will be boiled
The great thing is that we take care of all the meal preparation so at the end of a hard days slog all you have to do is sit back and relax.
