Provides suggestions for planning your menu and a menu that can be used for overnight or multi-day hikes. Download, print and start preparing your menu.

Helpful hint: Unless you are an ultralight hiker, ideally your overnight pack weight is likely to be between 12-14kg + around 0.5 kg of food per person per day depending on your build, metabolism, gear, water, climate and terrain.
