Tipi Hunting Tents

If you want the perfect hunting tent you are looking at the best tent for this purpose.. Varanger Helsport Tipi.

We are importing these tipis from Norway, so if you are an avid outdoorsman come and see what the fuss is all about.

Varanger was crowned test winner in an extensive lavvu comparison by Norwegian outdoor magazine villmarksliv. They were designed and developed for cold temperatures and once you are in one in frigid temperatures you will be glad you decided to get a Helsport Tipi.

Helsport is a family company established in 1951. Shortly after they developed their own sleeping bags and tent range. Helsport is proud to be seen as pioneer among developers, and for having products of the highest quality.

Their goal is to develop functional and high quality equipment for protection and comfort for varying weather conditions. If you choose Helsport, they want it to contribute to more enjoyment and pleasure for you in the nature.

Tested under the most extreme conditions – these are the best references!

Helsport has equipped a large number of expeditions over many years,. By having their products tested on expeditions over an extended period of time and under extreme conditions they are given invaluable knowledge which has contributed to the development of functional and user friendly solutions, and materials/ constructions that are prepared for the unexpected weather.

The outer tent is made of a specially developed fire retardant Helsport Rainguard® which is ideal for use in lavvu. The opening has protected double zippers and fire retardant mosquito mesh. Two Helsport AirflowII® ventilation ducts combine with an internally adjustable top opening to ensure sufficient airflow inside, preventing condensation and improving air quality. The aluminium centre pole is light and makes for easy set up and the many guy line points increase stability during high winds. A drying rack is included.

These Varangers come in three sizes so you have as much or as little space as you require.

The large Varanger Camp is perfect for those muddy, snowy or rainy wet days. A new concept with a large, fully protected entry, providing shelter from bad weather, extra room, and preventing rain from coming directly into sheltered area when the entry is open. The shape of a tipi is ideal for shedding rain or snow and no additional tarps are needed to keep you dry. Strong winds are no issue as the wind blows around the tipi, not to mention there are many points on the tipi for pulling down and tightening guy lines.

Windows provide light, and can be closed from the inside. All other features from our original Varanger are included.

The Varanger is so versatile it can be taken with you on a kayak, canoe, horseback, ski doo, watching the northern lights…you name it. Easy to set up even with one person.

The Varanger and Varanger Camp come in three sizes, 4-6, 8-10 and 12-14, the difference in size between the Varanger and the Varanger Camp is that the Varanger Camp has the large protected entry.

Varanger Camp

With a tipi the heat is central to everyone so there are no cold spots or super-hot spots in this tent. The woodstove is placed right in the middle of the tipi therefore allowing heat to be radiated equally and right to the top as the stovepipe stays inside the tent i.e. less wood gathering but more efficient. Helsport provides a drying rack with each tent which hooks onto the tent and forms a hoop around the stove pipe making it the perfect place to hang out wet socks, gloves or anything else you need drying

The ventilation system in the Helsport eliminates condensation and makes light work of adjusting the vents from inside with a patented adjustable top-hat. So you can have as little or as much ventilation as you require.

So if you are looking for the perfect tent for your hunting season, a tent that will keep you warm in the dampness or soaking rains, if you are looking to travel with some friends or family, these Tipis are perfect… Enjoy the warmth inside there is nothing like having a cozy place to hang out in especially when the weather is not playing fair. These tipis will do the trick no matter where you venture.
