Seems like an attractive idea. But for those with food allergies, some of the natural responses are:
As a food allergy family, with a member who has multiple life threatening food allergies (milk, eggs, nuts, gluten and shell-fish), we understand and appreciate these feelings!
As an outdoor loving family, we do not want the unfamiliar and the unknown to limit the enjoyment that comes from adventure travel.
Adventure travel such as hiking, backpacking, trekking, mountain biking and others do pose unique challenges.
It requires traveling to unfamiliar and potentially remote locations of staggering beauty and soul-filling solitude without ready access to familiar support systems.
It requires planning and packing your food in, as well as preparing high energy food that balances allergy concerns, weight and preparation techniques.
But the interesting thing is that a lot of the same approaches and techniques we use for day to day allergy management can be adapted to adventure travel.
And that opens up a spectacular world of mountains, lakes and rivers and natural beauty to us all.
