The Ultimate Wild Women Scroggin

 

By the Wild Women On Top Team | Experts in hiking adventures for women

Scroggin is an old bushwalking treat that lasts for ages, fills you up, nourishes you, doesn’t require cooking, and rejuvenates you mid-hike. Traditionally, it includes Sultanas, Currants, Raisins, and Other Good Goodies including Nuts!

We like to mix it up a bit, because we're Wild Women and that's the kinda thing we do. Scroggin is often a highlight of adventures, and we put a lot of care into our selection. Here's what you'll find in our scroggin bag.

Nutty: We roast a selection of the following nutty goodies: Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, pepitas, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, pepitas, sunflower seeds, shaved coconut and granola clusters. You can use any nut or seed you love. Some fun variations: Roast with a drizzle of honey and cinnamon to make sweet, or salt and paprika to add a bit of savoury. 

Fruity: Throw in a mix of medjool dates, caramelised ginger, dark chocolate coated ginger, dried peaches, dried apricots, dried nectarines, cranberries, sultanas, raisins, dried plums and dried mango. You can use any yummy dried fruit you like. 

Sweet: You could add some skittles, jelly snakes or wrapper-free chewy lollies, but remember these don't add nutrition. 

We recommend approx 100g of scroggin per person per day max for a full day of hiking - you don't need it for Trek Training! Remember, it's about quality over quantity - so buy the best quality ingredients you can afford and enjoy every mouthful.

I used to think I was tough but I’m not. I realised this not when I was climbing a particularly painful mountain, navigating a challenging divorce or even in childbirth. I realised it when my knee started to hurt and I couldn’t damn fix it.

There are many reasons why hiking is not like other exercise. It's fun, for starters. It's outdoors. It's social. It's free. It's accessible. But it's also a great way to multitask. There's heaps of things you can do while you're hiking - some of them fun, some of them productive, some just part of the adventure. Here are our favourites...

Not Fitness HERO
Recently, as I stood at the finish line of Adelaide Coastrek, our first event in partnership with mental health charity Beyond Blue, I realised our business had found its true heart. We weren't only walking for fitness, were walking away from fear, anxiety, hopelessness, depression, desperation and overwhelm, and towards hope, resilience and recovery.
