|Backcountry Trip Planning - Gear List & Packing|
When packing for your kayak trip, plan your menus in advance and remember that all food must pack into bear canisters. Space is an issue. Shop as though you are going on a back packing trip rather than a river rafting trip! Remove all grocery store items from their bulky packaging, put them in zip lock bags with the cooking instructions. By doing this, you can cut in half the space needed to store them and allow a lot more room for your gorp! Feel free to mail your dried food items to us in advance, U.S. Priority mail. (Private carriers take much longer to deliver to rural Alaska.) See our mailing FAQ for details.
Oatmeal, instant oatmeal, & cook cereals
Peanut butter and jelly
