Expedition Food

Careful planning and packing the right food can really impact upon the enjoyment of your expedition. You can burn 3,000-5,000 kcals per day on an expedition, so it is essential for you to pack enough of the right foods to fuel yourself well and to keep your energy levels up. The amount of food you need to carry will depend on the length of the expedition. You will also need at least 2 litres of water per day (this can be refilled each day). There is some basic information about food on your kit list but more detailed information can be found here.
