We love hearing from Hilleberg users all around the world as they share their adventures and experiences. Here are just a few of them. Contact us to get your story featured.


My dad, brother and I just spent seven nights on a fly-in DIY Backpack Brown Bear hunt on Kodiak Island in my new Kaitum 4.
Our home away from home was perfect for the three of us and all the gear we had to keep out of the rain. We received rain almost every afternoon and evening. We were blessed with not having the crazy heavy rain or winds that the island is known for but we certainly were not able to escape wet ground and steady precipitation. The tent performed flawlessly and condensation was not an issue with the protected vents being able to remain open despite the rain. We harvested a mature boar on the fourth day of the hunt and spent the next couple days packing out and waiting for our ride back to civilization.
Thanks again for producing such an awesome product.

I have had my Nammatj 3 GT for 30 years and have used it in Europe and in Australia. My verdict is that this tent is second to none in design, material selection and workmanship. I love every night that I get to spend in it. It is very clear that the designers are experienced campers who know exactly what makes a good tent design. The materials and workmanship have also stood the test of time.
Recently, when I sent the tent to Hilleberg for repairs, this was handled very professionally and to my utmost satisfaction.
How many cheap tents would I have gone through and how much frustration and money would that have cost, had I not chosen my Hilleberg tent a long time ago?
Thank you, Hilleberg. Please continue what you are doing and please don’t change your philosophy.

Dear Hilleberg Team and dear outdoor fans,
Last summer we started our vacation in Norway and hiked up to the “Hardangervidda.” In the weeks before it had rained and therefore the ground was very boggy, but we were still able to sleep in the dry every night with our Hilleberg tent (a Nallo from the 1980s that we were allowed to borrow from a friend). Sometimes we even had to pitch the tent in the rain, but as it is so easy to pitch, this worked out well. The nights in the Hardangervidda were special because there seemed to be no other people apart from us – just us and our tent in this vast landscape.
After our hike in Norway, we continued by train toward Sweden (where we had to change our trip a bit due to the weather) and rented a car to drive along the coast. There it was more difficult than expected to find a legal place to pitch the tent - camping is prohibited in many places.
But we still managed to pitch our tent every night. One night we slept surrounded by wild rabbits in a meadow near the beach. A few days later it started raining heavily again and we woke up one morning to find our tent standing in a big puddle. But the two of us inside the tent were dry and felt nothing of the wetness outside - which is quite remarkable for a tent that is almost 40 years old.
We would therefore heartily recommend Hilleberg tents to all hikers and outdoor fans. They weigh very little and are therefore easy to carry. They are also extremely quick to set up and can withstand rain and wind.
We are already looking forward to one day owning our own Hilleberg tent and experiencing new adventures with it.
Best wishes from Switzerland

Hi Hilleberg,
I hope you and the team are doing well up north!
After 8 months of sleeping in our Nammatj we stopped camping last December and made our way south.
We just wanted to let you know that we're almost done with our trip and to be honest, it was so good to always have that super reliable tent with us!
Please let the whole team know that even small customers like us and our friends really appreciate the work you guys are doing!!
Best wishes,
Nic von Aesch & Jana Aeschlimann


I started my trip in Arnhem (the Netherlands) and paddled solo to Spain in a sea kayak. 2000+ kilometers mainly on the Atlantic Ocean without any external assistance. I published hours of videos about it on my channel on YouTube. Of course I show and speak quite a lot about your tents in them, since I am really very happy with them! In my opinion the Unna is the very best tent in the world for long distance solo paddlers, I really love it. 
The trip was delayed because of various reasons, but I did it after all! I saw some really serious storms while camping on remote unprotected beaches and little islands, but never suffered not even the slightest damage; the Unna is really a remarkable shelter.
Warmest regards,

This Keron is an incredible tent that I have tested hard. It has stood up well given the severe weather of high-altitude elk hunting and camping in Salt River Range, Wyoming Range, Wind River Range, Bighorn Mountain, Laramie Range, Bear Lodge, and Sierra Madre. I have used it from 8000 to 11000 feet through all four seasons. It has stood the test of wind, snow, and cold impressively and there is no level of expression that can reflect my appreciation for what you build.
Thank you,
BDJ


Hello Hilleberg!
We had a lovely trip last weekend with our first test of the Anaris. Almost no wind, 6 degrees Celsius in the morning and a full moon at night and a beautiful sunrise. The tent is fantastic, super lightweight, well thought out, practical (like always with Hilleberg). It is very easy and quick to set up, surprisingly roomy for sleeping and sitting in, space also for your gear, a real “Kinder Egg.” We were really satisfied and it was “love at first sight.” I will recommend the tent for 3-season use in Norway, especially when you avoid going above the tree line, which is perfect for us. Many thanks to Natalia Fesenko who sewed the tent, the way it is sewn and assembled looks very good.
By the way, I purchased my first Hilleberg tent in 1991, a Nammatj 2 EX, that I have used a lot and is still in use occasionally after 32 years, both in standard and extended versions. Incredibly good quality, and many great experiences with that tent. When the kids started joining our trips, we got a Keron 3 GT in 2002. I recently sold that tent to switch to a Kaitum 3 GT, which I love because of the large inner tent, the low weight compared to the strength, and the ability to completely roll away the vestibules. I have used the Akto for solo trips for the last 10 years, for example during 4 weeks in Ladak/The Himalayas, and I use my Staika for paddling trips along the coast. The Anaris will probably become first choice for hiking trips from May/June to October when we are not walking very high up in the mountains.
When we receive our Saitaris, I will have 6 different Hilleberg tents, all for different purposes. The tents that I have used all have superb quality and functionality. I am convinced that the Saitaris will become our new favorite on winter trips in the mountains with a pulka.
I have periodically tried other well-known tent brands, but I sold these tents after a short while and regretted not getting a Hilleberg from the start. So I am able to compare based on experience and can say that you make the world’s best tents. I don’t think the price is too high when I include in the calculation how much I get for the money, and that you manufacture in Europe. That is also an important reason to stick to Hilleberg. I like the video about the factory in Estonia.
A huge thank you for what you stand for, and for the fantastic service I enjoy from you!
Kind regards,
Andreas


Dear Hilleberg,
A few days ago, I fulfilled a dream of crossing Iceland alone from Myvatn to Thingvellir via the Langjokull glacier. This 500km crossing with skis and pulka was the most difficult experience, but also the most beautiful of my life. I think back to the great frozen fields, the starry skies draped in aurora borealis and the furious storms that came to roar above my head. I remember the strongest moments, the tears of despair and the cries of victory...
In this great waltz of the world, I danced, I screamed, I crossed 500km through a multitude of incredible and varied winter landscapes. It is difficult to write this feeling of accomplishment in a few lines, the emotion is so strong. I lived every moment fully, trying to bear witness to this magnificent but so fragile universe...
Hilleberg supported me in this project by sending me material for my tent, the Tarra. This tent has saved my life several times, during snowstorms or rainstorms with extremely violent winds.
Thank you very much for everything.
Best regards "Merci beaucoup"

Hi from Peru (currently!)
I’ve had my Nallo 2 since 2009, when I bought it for my last Himalaya trip. Since then it’s always been my “go to“ when I know I’m going to be facing tough conditions. It’s been superb.
And for the last three months, I’ve been traveling through Central and South America on my trip due to end until March 2023. By the time this trip ends I will have spent around 100 more nights in the tent.
I have attached a picture of my current location with the Pacific Ocean in the background, just to make you a little bit jealous :)
Regards
Jim


Hi Hilleberg,
During December 2022 myself and two friends completed a traverse of the Drakensberg mountains in South Africa an exceptional trip of 240 km over 12 days with 10500 m elevation gain a tough but very rewarding trip. What a great adventure it has been with exceptional people, gear and some very special views of the mountains as shown in this photo of a special sunrise before the start of our day.
The Akto that I used and Nallo 3 (used by my friends) were great during the trip and provided excellent shelter for the varying weather conditions in the mountains. We want to thank Hilleberg for the great tents, attention to detail and providing peace of mind during the trip.

Hello,
We finally got outside to use our Kaitum 4 GT tent . It is a wonderful product. I carried it on an 11-mile hike into the backcountry including 3000 feet of elevation gain here in Alaska last weekend. My back appreciated the missing weight!

It was very fast and easy to set up. Our family of four + dog slept very comfortably although it was raining and somewhat windy at 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

Our Alaskan friends were all curious and appreciated the quality details of this unique tent.
Kind regards, 
Michael


Hi! 
We started our White Ribbon with an old dome tent that we had borrowed. The tent wasn’t so roomy and the inner tent had to be put up before the outer tent which made it inconvenient when we had to set it up and take it down every day. Therefore, we were thinking of getting a new tent. But it wasn’t until we tried to pitch the tent in a storm and woke up to the tent bowing inwards and three out of five tent poles were broken did we decide it was time for new tent...
The next day we contacted Hilleberg about getting a new tent. The customer service was great and through some luck and the goodwill of the locals at Valsjöbyn we were able to get a new tent the same day! We wanted this tent to be bigger and to have the ability to set up the outer and inner tent together. It had to be strong enough to withstand harsh weather conditions.
We bought Keron 4 GT. Maybe a bit overkill for two people but we haven’t regretted it once! The extra room was so nice, especially when you’re out for so many days. The extra comfort made a big difference. We could put all our gear in the vestibule, which we dug out so we could stand in it, which made it easy to put on our gear in the morning. Pitching the tent was super easy and could easily be done by one person. Putting it down was as easy as putting it up. We used the sled bag so we didn’t even have to remove the tent poles. The tent made the rest of the trip a breeze and we couldn’t be more happy with it!

As a UIAGM Mountain Guide and IPGA Expedition Polar Guide I have been working, guiding and exploring the polar regions since 1993. I have 30 years’ experience of Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. Living and surviving more than 2.5 years in tents in polar ice and snow I have used and tested many different tents, but since I first used a Hilleberg Keron 4 GT in Antarctica in 2012 I never want to miss the “Rolls Royce” among polar tents again any more. If you have to hunker down for several days and nights in a high-altitude storm on Mt. Vinson or are trapped in a brutal katabatic storm of over 100 km/h in windswept Queen Maud Land you learn to know what difference a Hilleberg tent makes. A Hilleberg Keron 4 GT is an oasis of comfort and security in the life-threatening wilderness of Antarctica. It is easy to pitch even in windy conditions by yourself. You can make yourself really comfortable inside it and make the tent a little cozy heaven to stay inside. The construction, the fabric and the material are a marvel of technology and are state of the art. I am absolutely convinced that you just can´t get any better polar-proof tent on this planet! It is a good feeling, to start on a polar expedition with a Hilleberg. It is comforting to know that as long as you find a safe spot to camp, you can be sure the tent won´t let you down. Thank you, Hilleberg for all your passion, experience, and effort.

We the "Zander clan," also refer to ourselves as "Team Full Value" due to our habit of making days stretch into night on family adventures. Just as well we always have a nice "home" – A Hilleberg tent to crawl into.
Logan, 7 and Rowan, 5 have been on countless bike packing, backpacking, desert and high alpine trips including snow camping. Their favorite part of each day is water play at camp and hanging in the tent.
Mom and Dad love the reliability and versatility of our Kaitum 4 "Big Red," Anjan 2, Niak 2. They each have a purpose in the quiver, according to gear-hound Tim. 
One of our favorite trips was riding from home in Summit County 360 mi to Durango, CO over 2 weeks. One magical night we camped at 13,000 ft on Imogene Pass. The tent was amazing. We felt like we were camping on the moon. (See attached photos).
Thanks Hilleberg for helping to make these adventures happen.
