Camping Food – durable foods that should'nt be missing during your travels

Planning a camping trip is always an exciting endeavor that brings us closer to nature and gives us precious memories. But as we prepare for the untouched wilderness, it is crucial to also think about proper nutrition. Being on the go often means having limited resources, so food choices are crucial. Long-life foods are the indispensable companions that not only satisfy our hunger, but also keep our energy ready for adventures.

From protein sources to in-between snacks, we have the optimal packing and shopping list with plenty of non-perishable foods and provisions to ensure you have a camping trip without worrying about spoilage.


In general, you should make sure that your food is stored cool, but above all dark and dry, to keep it fresh and edible for as long as possible. 

Water should always be stored in glass bottles or food-safe canisters, as plastic bottles dissolve over time and the plasticizer dissolves into the water. 

Before consuming or using the food, you should always carry out a quick quality check, i.e. check the appearance, smell, shape and texture.

Packing list for your camping holiday: 
  • Basic equipment: spices, salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, vegetable broth, rice, noodles, couscous, ready meals (e.g. instant noodles and soups), toast or crispbread etc.

  • versatile and long-lasting foods: potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, apples, oranges, ...

  • Snacks: Trail mix, granola bars, cookies, nuts, dried fruits, chocolate, ...

  • Drinks: Coffee, Tea and Drinking Water

  • Spreads: Honey, Jam, Peanut butter, ...

  • Canned food: Fruits, vegetables, canned meat or fish, ...

  • Long-life Milk or milk alternatives


Avoid fresh meat and perishable fruits and vegetables. It is better to buy this locally from the supermarket if necessary.
