The Waikaremoana Discovery Tour is a fully catered walk. Firstly, all of your daily meals, trail snacks, post-hike wine and beer and hot drinks are provided by Walking Legends and included in your tour package. Lake Waikaremoana is a very remote, secluded area and the nearest town is an hours’ drive away.
We plan and prepare a set menu and supply all the ingredients and foodstuffs required to keep everyone well nourished and fueled throughout the 4-day trip. Our guides and our kitchen helpers will prepare all our meals and serve these in the communal dining area. If the weather is particularly nice, we might share our meal alfresco overlooking the lake.
Secondly, we use a lot of fresh, seasonal produce in our menus. For instance, breakfasts are usually continental, with the option of a poached egg on toast. Lunches are made fresh daily and consist of a sandwich or wrap packed full of nutritious fillings, with fresh fruit, an energy bar or some baked goods. We offer two course, Kiwi-style meals with plenty of protein, carbohydrates and fibre. Most importantly, we can cater for many dietary restrictions and adapt meals as necessary. If you have a specialty diet, please let us know in advance so we can be well-prepared to take excellent care of you.
We offer a complimentary glass of wine, beer or non-alcoholic option with dinner each night. There are no stores at Lake Waikaremoana so if you’d like to bring your own alcoholic choices with you you are most welcome to, however, we ask that you drink responsibly.
