Sometimes you have to repair your tent. Some things you can manage yourself, others you need help to do. Here are some tips from Tentipi.


Spare parts such as stakes and pegs, central poles or just about anything else are available to buy individually as a replacement. Please don’t hesitate to contact Customer Service or your retailer if you can’t find what you need.

Repair light fabrics using Seam grip+SIL silicone tent sealant. Apply a little glue both from the outside and inside so that the hole or tear is covered. Seam grip+SIL also seals seams when the entire tent does not need to be re-impregnated, which is usually not necessary.

Repair a damage using a patch

Patching small holes or minor rips in the cotton/polyester fabric using Fabric adhesive and a patch – without you even having to take down the Nordic tipi.

Repair an up to 200 mm damage (in any direction) using a patch. There are repair patches included in the tent’s packing bag when buying an Adventure Nordic tipi.

Cut a patch in the fabric matching the tent fabric. Round off the corners. Mark the size of the patch on the inside of the tent fabric. Take glue on the tent fabric and on the patch and spread it out all over the surface. Let the glue dry so that it is non-stick and then place the patch on the tent fabric and press it. Spread the glue in the joints so that the patch fits snugly against the tent fabric.

Here you will find your serial number


In order for you to get the right price and for us to be sure that we have the right material for the right tent, we will ask for the serial number. Over the years, the location of the serial number has changed. On today's Nordic tipis, it is both on a label on the compression bag and on a label inside the tent, on the left side of the door seen from the inside, after the bottom edge. The same place inside the tent also applies to the older models Nibba and Vagge. On the back of the logo triangle at the door you will find the serial number of a ToppJakt, Arran and Varrie. On the older models, the serial number may be handwritten.

Prepare before setting out for winter camping. Here are nine tips and tricks from Tentipi about what you need to think of before you go: the right tent for winter camping, how to pack the snow, comfort in snow, which tent pegs to use, where to pitch the tent, about snow weight, what heat sources can be combined with the tent, how to make a fire safely and other equipment.

Choose tents according to occasion, different tent types work differently at winter camping. When it’s icy, the tent needs to be more robust than a tent which is exclusively used in summer. The tent frame needs to withstand a certain amount of snow and functional ventilation is important. If you want to use a heat source, for example a fireplace or a stove, the tent needs to have ventilation openings both at ground level and at the top.  Without a heat source, a smaller tent is preferable, as it heats up faster when the air volume is smaller.

A tent from Tentipi is a Nordic tipi and the tent has eight or nine sides, if it is not the smallest that has six sides. In the smallest tent you can stand straight if you are less than 160 centimetres long and in the largest you can get together several thousand people. The tent is versatile in more ways.
