It’s a tent you can rely on totally in storm-force gales or in blazing heat. The tipi's shape and advanced design makes it really secure in high, gusty winds, and the ingenious ventilation solutions controls the inside climate on those hot summer mornings when the air stands still, as well as those days when the Northumberland climate closes in! Their symmetrical shape with a low centre of gravity keeps the tents stable when the wind gusts. Tentipi® Nordic Tipis are actually more secure in high and gusty winds than most other tent designs.
Our tipis are the same type used by professionals in the most extreme conditions, in ice-fields, in storm-force gales, on top of glaciers, in blazing heat or on “the coldest journey in the world” — a 3,500 km, ten-month trek across Siberia made by a Swedish expedition. If they can handle that, they can certainly ensure that you are comfortable on your family camping trip at Herding Hill Farm! They are renowned for storm resistance, effective ventilation and mosquito protection.
