A tunnel tent made by Hilleberg

Hilleberg is a Swedish tent-making company founded in 1973 by a husband and wife team, Bo and Renate Hilleberg. Control of the company has since passed to their children Rolf and Petra Hilleberg. Their son Rolf Hilleberg manages the European division from Sweden while their daughter Petra Hilleberg heads up the American division from Seattle, Washington. Its products are well known for their use on expeditions to harsh locations such as Antarctica.

Hilleberg manufactures tents of various designs and sizes, but their production is focused on specialist lightweight tents at the premium end of the market. Hilleberg's tent line is dominated by twin-skin designs that erect flysheet and inner-tent simultaneously, a feature that was introduced in their first model, the Keb. Their products have a reputation for excellent quality, durability and design, albeit matched with high prices. Their most well-known tents are the Keron, the Nallo ultra-light tent, the Nammatj versatile expedition tunnel tent (pictured), the freestanding Staika dome tent and the Akto single hoop tunnel for solo campers.
