There are tuna and salmon steaks now available in the canned meat aisle of the grocery stores around here. No refrigeration needed.

Try Freezer Bag Cooking™ | Outdoor Food Simplified .

We have backpacked our meals like this for years. This particular site has a bunch of good recipes that you can modify or use to springboard for your own reciipes. I order a bunch of freeze dried veggies and meats for a little more variety (dehydrated doesn't always rehydrate well).

This is a very safe and convenient, as well as weight saving method, of feeding yourself on long distance hikes (we do similar length sections on the Appalachian Trail).

Happy hiking--let us know how you do!

the best thing for long hikes are military supply foods.

You betcha. Do a little experimenting, it really does help give you a variety of things to carry out for a week or so, with minimal weight or space. You can also try Appalachian Trail - Whiteblaze.net and take a look at the food and cooking section (this is an appalachian trail website). You might pick up some other ideas, and there are lots of people who talk about their using FBC as well, and how they have adapted recipes, etc.

Are you in Berlin? Any sports store (Schuster, for example) has relatively tasty dehydrated food packs. I think over here they call them MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat). When I lived in Germany (Munich, so quite a ways from where you are) and we were going to be out and about on day hikes, we'd get these meals. I wish I could remember the name of them. Of course, you need boiling water to rehydrate, but they were great.

Stove Top is a great idea... of course, that's not available in Germany, though, so that one doesn't help you.

As an aside, I have a friend who did (does?) a lot of hiking in the Bavarian Alps and he said that he would take along those bouillon cubes to add to the water when he was cooking because it just injected a little flavor. Of course it injects a ton of sodium, too, but... just a thought.

I was also going to suggest MRE's.

Nuts, seeds and a variety of dried fruit too.
