Menu Planning & Packing

We provide complete food packing and menu service for private Tatshenini-Alsek River trips. You build a trip Menu – on your own, or using one of our Sample Menus as a guide. We will plan, shop, label, pack, and provide a calendar planner, recipe book, and packing maps.  

Food Pack Organization:

At the end of your trip Tat or Alsek River trip, gear and people will be flown out in small aircraft. Our food pack is organized to make efficient use of cargo space.

Dry goods are packed in 2-3 soft, waterproof bilge bags (depending on the trip size) lined with cardboard boxes to provide structure and organization.

Perishables such as produce, meat, and dairy are packed in coolers with block ice; you’ll have 1 cooler per raft.

We label ingredients, and provide a menu planner, recipe book, and maps showing where is food packed. We will cover the food packing system during your group’s pre-trip meeting in Haines.

Menu Options

We have built two sample menus to simplify your food planning process. Use these samples as a guide to build your menu — or create your own menu plan by selecting from the recipes listed in the General Food Pack Information Form.
