What about Food? What Do We Eat?

Your crew will eat meals on base when not on expedition. Before you hit the trail or water, a meal will be provided from base.  You should plan on wearing your trail clothes to that meal in order to expedite your departure on trek. 

After you get off the trek, you will again eat a meal before heading out to transportation back home. 
See the Trip Enhancements section to learn more about the Alaska Salmon Bake!
While on the trail or on the water your crew will partake in some of the best trail food in the business. Our commissary is stocked according to an expertly crafted menu. Your Trek Leader spends the morning before you arrive at base packing your food and getting your crew gear together. After you arrive, your Trek Leader will go through the trail food with you and explain what is included. This also allows you and the Trek Leader to double check and make sure everything is packed. You will pick up the trail food in the morning before hitting the trail or water.

What about Dietary Restrictions?

Please fill out and submit a Dietary Restriction Notification card for each crew member that has a restriction and mail it to the base. These cards MUST BE RECEIVED by NLHA no later than 45 days prior to your trek. 
Please keep in mind that while we try to be as accommodating as possible, we will not be able to accommodate all food needs and may ask participants with certain needs to supplement the menu with their own food.

Northern Lights High Adventure Base Update

2019 Signups are now finalized. This year is going to be a busy season and hold many adventures for scouts from across the United States. 
We have Troops or Crews from as far away as Florida and Connecticut traveling this summer to experience as much of Alaska as possible! Some are headed down the Yukon River and others are hiking around Denali. Others still are trying their hand at catching Salmon and Gold panning. They run a serious risk of filling their tummies and possibly striking it rich! 
Whatever adventure and thrills they are seeking.  The High Adventure Base treks really get out and around this year as well. We will be visiting the villages or cities of Homer, Valdez, Denali, Eagle, Circle, Anchorage and Fairbanks as well as throughout the Alaskan, Chugach, Yukon and White Mountain Ranges.  
We are confident they will have memories of this years visit to Alaska for the rest of their lives! AlaskacompareUSAmap
