Redwood Llamas Back Country Gourmet Meals

Redwood Llamas Back Country Gourmet Meals

This menu has evolved from 30 years of llama packing.
“One of the best things about purchasing llamas was that I didn’t have to eat freeze dried food any more, thanks to the llamas’ capabilties to carry food!” says Bill Redwood owner of Redwood Llamas and an avid backpacker for 15 years.
In our comfortable camps we have an outfitter wing (shelter) to be able to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful scenery. We have tables to cook on and serve the food, and also provide you with fold up chairs.
Our meals are designed not only to provide the necessary calories needed when hiking the trails but also to taste good! There are also vegetarian options, and we offer a variety of salads as well as wine with every dinner.
We will take meal requests from the menu below. If this is a custom private trip we should be able to meet most of your meal choices. However if the trip is a combined group, we will design the menu according to combined group desires. A variety of energy snacks are also provided daily for our clients to meet your needs on the trail.
