At Wandering Owl, we focus on being as sustainable as possible. This mindset translates also to the food we serve. We’ve partnered with local vegetable farmers to provide us with as much of our produce as possible. To minimize our impact on the environment we have decided to serve vegan food with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. This ensures that we are following our own standards in minimizing impacts on the environment.
The food we serve is handmade and mostly locally sourced. Below you will find a list of the activities and the associated dishes:
Summer/Winter Arctic Landscape, Night/Day Hike, Snowshoeing activities:
- Hot chocolate (vegan)
- Sandwich (vegan)
- Homemade cookies (vegan)
- Hot chocolate (vegan, can be gluten free)
- A selection of soups (carrot soup, lentil soup or seaweed soup; all vegan and gluten free)
- Homemade cookies (vegan, contain gluten)
*The seaweed soup is sourced locally from sugar kelp (Laminaria saccharina). One of our friends is an expert in the field of macroalgae and knows which ones to harvest and at what time, to have the least impact on the environment.
We can provide gluten-free or lactose-free options on request. Please inform us well in advance about any allergies or special dietary requirements so we can do our best to cater to them.
You can check with us for allergens in the food served on Wandering Owl tours.
Being part of the solution, by not using SUP
We are often asked by guests why we don’t offer marshmallows for the fire as a fun activity. Though this is a cosy north American tradition, we have found that a lot of trash gets created. To contextualize this problem, in an average Aurora season, we’d use over 500 packets of marshmallows, which would be over 4000 plastic bags we’d have consumed since we began in 2014.
Additionally, we see that the plastic that remained was sometimes found in beautiful nature. That is why we have decided against having SUP (single-use plastics) as part of our tours, so we can be part of the solution and not the problem.
