New Expedition Sponsor – Drytech AS
Generous Drytech Sponsorship Package Received

 

 

These packs have been really great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper…..and really do fill you up with very tasty, quickly prepared, high quality food.

 

 

They quite often they formed part of the tail-gate lunch set-up.

 

 

 

They are not only suitable for campsite meals or hytte / hostel meals, but also travel food for day trips and hiking tours, etc.

 

 

Some of our REAL Turmat food locations were quite photogenic…

 

 

However, campsite dinners was the most common way we used our REAL Turmat packs.

 

 

Sometimes, we added little extras, to make the meal pack even more interesting and enjoyable…

 

 

And they have even formed part of more formal evening dinner events…(REAL Turmat and a good quality Red Wine really do go well together).

 

 

And no matter where we eat them, sitting or standing, they tasted just great…

 

 

 

And with all the fantastic views all around, it just adds extra flavour to the whole meal event.

 

 

We highly recommend them to anyone who is travelling – they will certainly form a basic standard in our food packs from now on.

 

We have mounted their logo stickers on our Equipment Transport Boxes,

 

as well as both Expedition Vehicles (on both sides and back).

 

 

 

We would once again like to say a very big Thank You to Drytech AS (especially Kyrre Jonassen (Sales Manager) and Magnus Melkeraaen (Key Account Manager)) for all their positive Sponsorship and Support.

It’s really great to have a specialist / quality Norwegian outdoor tour food company supporting us in this very positive way.

 

We have not only enjoyed using their products in Iceland, but also look forward to using them on other exciting trips into the future.

 

Highly recommended quality product….

We always keep a pair of their sunglasses hanging in the windscreen area, for quick access when required.

 

 

 

And of course, we use them when out travelling – especially useful when exploring glaciers…

Even the hats come in useful when doing the wet and dirty work………..
