I just wanted to thank you for making the best tents in the world. I just came home from a hike in Marsfjällen in Vilhelmina, Southern Lapland and my Nammatj 3 GT was amazing (as usual).
I stayed warm despite the evening's rain and the night's freezing temperatures and the tent stood firm despite strong wind.
Thank you for making it possible to sleep in a tent that not only feels incredibly stable - but also very homely thanks to the generous apse!

The aim of the Year Outdoors project was to spend exactly one calendar year hiking in the most remote areas of northern Scandinavia. After 18 months of planning and preparations I began my journey in August 2019 from the shores of the Arctic Sea in northern Norway.
The year I spent in the Nordic wilderness was an unforgettable one. As both mental and physical challenge it was something I had never faced before and I’m glad that I was able to overcome it. More importantly, looking back I remember the journey as a profound nature experience. Although I spent almost nine months alone on this trip, I never felt myself lonely. The nature always kept me company in some form or another. From the beginning to the end of this long journey, I felt that nature really took me under her wing as one of her own.
Finally, after 2500 kilometers of walking and skiing I finished the journey the same place I started it 366 days before. During the whole trip, I had a Hilleberg tent with me to provide me reliable shelter when camping outdoors was not an option. In every storm I felt lucky to own such a quality equipment.
We have been using our Staika now for a week and I wanted to tell you that we are very happy with it! It feels very solid and the inner tent is spacious. We learn everyday quicker to set up the tent and how to ventilate the best way. We really think this tent is perfect for long distance cycle tourers who are making as long and demanding trips as we do. The first picture is taken at the campground in Rochester, Victoria and the second at Lake Boga, Victoria. So once again, thank you for your great service and giving us the feeling that we can continue our cycle tour through Australia without worries. Cheers, Jelle and Carla
I’m from Melbourne Australia and exploring remote, isolated Australian coastal areas while land-based game fishing is my passion. I love my akto tent. Survived a Bass Strait Southern Ocean storm last night with 60 knt winds. Here is this evening's picture with my guests. Thank you kindly, Robert Franc
I wanted to share a few photos with our Keron 3 GT during our 75 day long adventure through the Swedish mountain chain. It was 1330 km. We started in Grövelsjön, Dalarna and ended at the Three-country Cairn where the Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian borders meet. The night photos were taken on very cold nights, -32 Celsius, one of them with strong Northern lights. During our adventure we encountered various weather of course - 36 Celsius at the coldest, strong winds but of course beautiful weather as well! We choose the Keron 3 GT due to its quality and robustness to bad weather. When you are out for 75 days you don't want to worry about your gear. We were able to focus on enjoying the trip and handle all the challenges on the way, always know that your high quality gear would keep us safe and warm. Thanks, Emma and Gustav
Dear Petra and friends, First, I want to share my warmest thanks for creating such beautiful tents. I consider my Keron 3 GT "my first home,” and have used it along the coast of Labrador and across Baffin Island. My great-grandfather was an outfitter to Amundsen and Shackleton, and beloved gear is a deep part of our family tradition; I'm so thankful the absolutely brilliant kit you craft is part of our family tradition now, too. with gratitude from Nunavut, Andrew
Hello Hilleberg, Just got in from a quick trip with anjan 3. I am tickled to death with this tent. It was a joy to use and even though the winds got just a bit fierce the tent held its own and I'm sure it will perform flawlessly in the future Thanks, Ken
Hi Hilleberg, I wanted to give you a quick update regarding my Soulo tent. I have been using it in Patagonia for just a couple weeks, but so far I am loving it! Here are a couple pictures taken near the shore of Belgrano Lake in Perito Moreno National Park, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina during a scouting trip to lay out new hiking trails in the park. All the best. Jedediah Talbot OBP Trailworks, LLC
Thank you so much for these amazing tents. Had a great time in my Akto here in Australia. Regards Falk
Dear Hilleberg, My dog Cruz and I had a great weekend in the Uinta mountains this past weekend. I love my Nallo 3 GT! I purchased this tent last year. It's a bit big for just me and the dog, but it rained for almost 12 hours straight, and I've never had a tent keep me so dry. I especially love the huge vestibule space. Thanks for making such great products and standing behind your work. Thanks, Ryan Johnson
Hey Hilleberg, I wanted to share a story about one of my adventures this summer. I was backpacking with a friend in the Grand Mesa, outside of Grand Junction Colorado, USA. The weather was roughly in the mid 90s, very high humidity. The mosquitoes were so thick that you couldn’t have any skin exposed. I wasn’t going to bring my Tarra, because of the warm weather but I did anyways. If I didn’t bring my tent, I would’ve probably died I got very sick from the mosquitoes and the poison water. My Tarra gave me a place of refuge. I also wanted to share a couple photos from some of my other adventures with the Tarra. The first one in the trees we were backpacking to a place Called “Lakes of the Clouds“ the snow was deep, the trail was flooded, the nights were cold, rainy, and windy. The weather never phased my Tarra!! The second is me chilling in my Tarra during a rain storm at 10000 feet. Thank you for making such great tents. Your friend always, Dale Jimeson
Hi Hilleberg, I wanted to share a photo from a recent trip of my 17 year old and Sam's brand new Nallo 2. We’ve taken our Nallo wildcamping all over, Scotland, Wales, Alps, Dolomites, Ecuador, and it’s never let us down. Regards, Louis
Hello Hilleberg, When Roberto and I walked across Lake Baikal, we bet on a Keron 4 GT - and it was the right decision! The winter in Siberia can throw a lot at you, especially if you are in the middle of an ice surface without protection. It's good to have a bomb-proof, portable home that also offers luxurious space and clever details. The materials and functions of the Keron are excellent and since we pulled the tent in a pulka, the weight was no problem either. With a few ice screws and the Abalakov technique we were prepared for any wind and the two vestibules were the garage for the pulkas - very practical. Camping on clear, kilometer-deep water is an impressive experience and with Hilleberg equipment a safe and comfortable adventure. Thank you very much for your commitment to making excellent equipment. Olaf and Roberto
