Absolutely, we are happy to accommodate guests with specialty diets on the Great Barrier Island Escape walk. We appreciate as much advance notice as possible. A lot of the fresh food we eat is ordered from the mainland, so our lodge hosts like to have everything planned in advance so that they are ready for us. Advanced notice of dietary requirements allows them to plan their food orders and negotiate delivery timeframes around the cargo ferry timetables. There are no supermarket chains or major food distribution warehouses or wholesalers on the island, most of the food stuffs are shipped over from Auckland.
If we don’t receive adequate advanced notice, we may not be able to fully cater for dietary needs as we sometimes operate in an extremely isolated environment and it is not always possible to access specialty foods. Please ensure you advise us as early as possible if you have dietary requirements. You are very welcome to bring any particular food items that you’d like to have or those which may be hard to find on an island such as Great Barrier.
