Food on the river - What do meals look like?

Gourmet Adventures: Dining with Orange Torpedo Trips

When you embark on a rafting and camping adventure with Orange Torpedo Trips, you’re signing up for more than just an adrenaline rush through the rapids; you’re diving into a culinary journey that delights as much as the landscapes around you. Our carefully curated menus ensure that every meal becomes a memorable part of your adventure. Here is a quick summary of some of the best meals you can expect on your trip down the river.

First Night Fiesta

Your adventure kicks off with a bang on the first night. As you settle by the riverside, we begin with a lively appetizer spread of chips, guacamole, salsa, and queso—perhaps even a quesadilla if the appetite demands. For dinner, the main event is a delectable choice between Dutch oven enchiladas and a fajita tortilla roll filled with rice and beans, accommodating dairy or veggie-free diets without compromising on flavor. The Spanish rice and refried beans, along with fresh guacamole, set the stage for a culinary journey that’s as exciting as the rapids waiting for you.

Breakfasts to Fuel Your Day

Waking up in the wilderness, you’ll be greeted with a breakfast spread that rivals your favorite brunch spots. From the crispy bacon and hash browns to the health-conscious avocado toast, granola, and yogurt with honey, every morning offers a mix of hearty and healthy. Not to be missed is the Dutch Oven French Toast, a delight that perfectly combines sweetness with the crisp morning air.

Lunches on the Go

Our lunches are designed to refuel you without slowing you down. Enjoy a variety of salads, from the spinach pasta salad with chicken to the exotic Tubuli salad, paired with essentials like PBJ, Pringles, and cookies. The German Chocolate Brownie for dessert is just the cherry on top. For a twist, the Cobb Salad Bar and wraps allow for a customizable lunch experience on day three, ensuring you’re more than ready to tackle the afternoon’s adventures.

Dinner Delights

Each dinner is an occasion in itself. From the second night’s Chicken Parm to the third night’s exquisite tri-tip and salmon fillet with chimi-churri, every meal is a feast for the senses. Our chefs take pride in their craft, whether it’s the barbecue chicken with all the fixings or the sophisticated Dutch oven chicken casserole. Desserts like the cinnamon roll apple pie or Nutella and strawberry cones ensure a sweet end to your day.

Culinary Flexibility on the River

The menu on each trip may vary, as some journeys span more nights than others. Additionally, fire restrictions at times prevent us from using open flames, but our creativity in the kitchen ensures that the quality and deliciousness of our meals remain unaffected. Regardless of the circumstances, our commitment to providing sumptuous, satisfying meals remains unwavering. Additionally, for those with dietary restrictions or just dietary preferences, we are excited to work with you to ensure you not only have a great trip on the river, but at the table as well.

At Orange Torpedo Trips, we believe that the meals we serve are an integral part of the adventure. Not only do they fuel your body for the day’s activities, but they also provide a moment to gather, share experiences, and enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you. Each dish, from sunrise breakfasts to starlit dinners, is crafted with care, enhancing your connection to the outdoors and those you’re adventuring with. So, as you ready yourself for the thrilling rapids ahead, rest assured that a culinary adventure awaits, promising to be as unforgettable as the journey itself.
