Peak Nic - A hike and an outdoor cooking lesson

Jasper Trip Overview

Cooking in the back-country is an art. It takes careful planning, cool outdoor gear and light weight ingredients. At Peak Nic, you will experience how it feels to be completely self-sufficient in the great outdoors.

Equipped with a small backpack full of ingredients, outdoor cooking gear and a hiking pole, you will be hiking a 3.5 KM intermediate trail to a famous local peak Old Fort Point. Once at the top, we will setup camp and I will teach you how to cook delicious food in the outdoors using light and flavor-packed ingredients with a “leave-no-trace” approach. We will then sit and enjoy our creations while taking in panoramic views.
