We’ve always loved adventure. There’s something about being in the wilderness, surrounded by nature, that just makes us feel alive. In 2021, we were planning a multi-day hike in the Fish River Canyon with some friends. We knew that we would be burning a lot of calories on the trail, so we wanted to make sure that we had some delicious and nutritious meals to eat. We heard of dehydrated lightweight meals which would be the best option to keep our bags light, but wanted a taste experience of a gourmet cooked home meal.
Karin is a pretty good cook, so we asked her to try her hand at making some dehydrated meals. It came at a good time, as she was retrenched in COVID and had the time and passion for cooking. She spent weeks perfecting the recipes, and we were extremely impressed and really happy with the results. On the FRC hike, we enjoyed Karin’s dehydrated meals for every dinner and mostly lunches too. The meals were so delicious that our friends were blown away. After the hike, our friends kept raving about the meals. They said that they were the best-dehydrated meals they had ever had.
That’s when we had the idea to start a business. We wanted to share our delicious dehydrated meals with other hikers. We knew that there was a gap in the market for gourmet-style dehydrated meals that were also affordable.
So, Hungry Hiker was born. We offer a variety of tasty meals from vegan to meat-based meals. The meals are all made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. They are also packed with nutrients to keep you energized on your next adventure.
We’re still a small business, but we’re growing every day. We’re passionate about providing hikers with delicious and nutritious meals that will help them fuel their adventures.
So next time you’re planning a hike, be sure to pack a Hungry Hiker meal. You won’t be disappointed!
Here’s a little more about us:

Together, we’re on a mission to make hiking more enjoyable for everyone. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy delicious and nutritious meals on their adventures, and we’re committed to providing them with the best possible options.
We hope you’ll join us on our journey inspired by adventure.
