The itinerary includes 16 breakfasts, 17 lunches and 7 dinners. Usually the group and the guide prepare the meals together as many of the meals are picnic style lunches or dinners. Breakfasts are generally buffet/continental style; lunches are sandwiches, salads and fruit. The evening meals prepared in the backcountry are a little more basic for practical reasons, but still flavoursome and nutritious (mainly vegetarian). Please note: food for lunches and dinner will be purchased during the tour by your leader, and you may be asked to help with this.
