The adventure starts here…

Outdoors adventure means confronting the elements, earth, air, water, fire. This is why we call these tents our Adventure range. How better can you explore the earth, defy wind and rain, shelter from cold, sun, snow and insects — and share the elemental comfort of an open fire?

Trekking, motoring, cycling, climbing, fishing, family camping — whatever the outdoors calls you to do, you can do it in comfort and style with a Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipi. And you can have a warm, cosy fire to sit round at the end of the day. These tents are an epoch-making advance — they combine the portability and stormproof qualities of today’s lightweight tents with the comfort and homely feeling of the traditional Sami dwellings. And they are so manageable; they weigh from only 3.5 kg for 6 people! It’s a rare and valuable combination, and this is why we have named them after some of the earth’s most rare and precious materials.

Tentipi® Nordic tipis let you embrace the elements

The elements can really dampen your enjoyment of an outdoor life, and they can even be a danger to life. When choosing your outdoor equipment, it’s often a matter of protecting yourself from the elements.

    • The tent sleeps two people plus a dog and has room for four people to sit and socialise.
    • All equipment is stored “indoors”.
    • Our In-Tent Vent™ ventilation system in the apex provides natural ventilation on hot mornings and days. It’s easy to regulate from inside, even from the sleeping bag!

    • Built-in, foldaway snowflap makes the tent suitable for use in any season.

    Adventure fabrics

    Of course, such a fabric will never be made.

    Why choose a Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipi?

    • Because you want the luxuries of space, standing height, outstanding ventilation and an open fire or a stove.
    • Because you want cosy togetherness and comfort in all kinds of weather. Most lightweight tents are mainly shelters. But you can live in a Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipi!
    • Because you don’t want to compromise on factors like weight, safety, and easy handling.
    • Because they are easy to erect — one person can do it in 5 minutes or less, even in windy conditions. Adjustable tent peg catches make it easy in snow or sand, and storm cord holders stop the cords from getting tangled.
    • Because they are so versatile. You can use a Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipi for a ten-month trek across Siberia, to entertain your children in the garden, for holidays and for weekends in the country; people do. Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipis are light enough to take up a mountain, yet spacious enough to sleep up to 16 people.

    All-round better performance

    Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipis score top marks for versatility, quality of materials, safety, comfort, manageability, and protection against heat, cold, rain and condensation. You can choose from different levels of performance to match your lifestyle and budget. Take a look at the top of the range Safir cp; the Safir light (up to 6 kgs lighter); the simpler, breathable Onyx cp; the eye-catching Zirkon, and the Zirkon 15 cp for groups of up to 35 people.

    Important considerations

    Ask yourself these vital questions when you’re comparing tents:

    • Will one tent meet all my needs?
    • Can I have an open fire or a stove, and is there a good size smoke opening?
    • Has the fabric got a reinforced edging?
    • Is the protection chain unbroken to keep out mosquitoes and ants?
    • Can you control the ventilator cap from inside without leaving your sleeping bag?
    • Are there large ventilator openings and air intakes to keep you comfortable all the time?
    • What about the weight? Does the quoted weight include fabric, ventilator cap, packing bag, pole and pegs?
    • If you are using a stove, is there plenty of insulation between chimney and fabric?
    • Are there enough optional accessories (and are they of the same quality as the tent)?

    You’ll find that the Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipi range comes out top.

    Better in the wind

    Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipis have a big advantage in the wind because they have a symmetrical shape with a low centre of gravity. This keeps the tents stable when the wind gusts. Most of the tent area that’s under wind pressure is near the ground, where the wind speed is lower. Only a small, slim area projects higher than other tents. This means that Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipis are actually more secure in high and gusty winds than most other tent designs.

    Why should you buy?

    You should be thinking of buying a Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipi if any of these apply to you:

    • You like the idea of sitting cosily round an open fire without being disturbed by mosquitoes, rain or draughts
    • You are looking for a tent that is more than just a place to sleep or just a shelter when the weather is inclement
    • You are a family with small children
    • You want comfortable camping without a caravan
    • You enjoy motorcycle touring
    • You’re a rock climber
    • You’re a canoeist
    • You need first-class tent accommodation for youth groups, scouts and clubs

    Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipis are designed for year-round use, but, as with all tents, you must clean snow from them continuously to maintain their design performance.

    When using an open fire, please respect local restrictions.


    This lightweight tent design has a five-piece, triple-strength alloy pole, and uses the very best of 21st century material technology. As a result you have all-weather performance, supported by powerful ground straps, the strongest storm cord fastenings in the tent market, and tent pegs of super-hardened aluminium. Most importantly, you have choice of fabrics to match your needs and budget.

    If you want to cross Antarctica, survey a glacier or trek in the High Atlas you can have the best possible materials on the planet to match your extreme requirements. If your plans are less demanding but you still want strength and durability allied to light weight, we have the materials for this, too. The Tentipi company is based near the Arctic Circle. In winter, it can be -45 °C, and +30 °C in summer. We’re surrounded by mountains, swamps, rivers and forests.

    We understand the elements, and we respect them. We understand the widest range of outdoor lifestyles, and we satisfy them.


    Many other tent designs use a wall-connected framework that can crack in strong winds or if people stumble into it. We avoid these risks. Our Nordic tipis have a central pole that lifts up the top of the tent. Every seam in the fabric then contributes to a strong but still flexible framework when the fabric is secured to the tent pegs. Normally, the worst thing that can happen is that a tent peg comes loose. And that is much easier to fix than a broken pole in a dome tent.

    All our single-pole Nordic tipis are designed so that you can sit round an open fire inside. Even the smallest lightweight ones let you do this. They have much better ventilation than you find in other tents. Better still, in most models, this ventilation has a patented In-Tent Vent™ system so that the top ventilator opening can be adjusted for size and direction from inside the tent. Convenience is a priority. The adjustable tent peg catches also make all the Tentipi® Adventure Nordic tipis easy to use in snow or sand.

    What mainly distinguishes our different styles from each other is the type of materials, and the details. These affect the weight, comfort, lifespan and price. Our aim is to give you the choice of price and performance that you need.

    Make your choice. All these tents are light, stable in wind, extremely comfortable and let you have an open fire. All you have to do is select the size, price and performance that is right for you. We’re sure you’ll find it within the Tentipi® Adventure range.
