Hekla fire box

For cooking or heating on the go – it's the ideal portable solution


Our fire box, Hekla, gives off plenty of heat with very little smoke. Makes it easy to grill, cook, or just enjoy the heat and light. Its clever design means that it takes up very little space when packed. Normally, when you make a fire direct on the ground, a bed of coals builds up quickly. Wood stumps roll to the edges gently smoking.

Visible smoke contains non-combusted gases. Insufficient combustion gives three negative effects: the degree of efficiency is unsatisfactory, tar particles in the smoke burn your eyes and because the smoke is relatively cold, it does not rise so easily.

The Tentipi® fire box solves all these problems in a clever way. Many holes in the bottom provide the fire with sufficient oxygen. This both increases the combustion efficiency as well as the heat produced. Therefore, wood added to the fire burns better. The frame around the fire reflects the heat which ignites the wood stumps which would otherwise produce smoke.

Wood fuel use is reduced and there is much less risk for eye burning smoke.

The fire box is indispensible if you are going to build a fire on snow. The legs fold out and can be placed on branches or other support material on the snow, thereby preventing the fire box from sinking into the snow.

Hekla 7

Perfect for hiking as an alternative to a spirit stove set. Throws off a comfortable heat which, for our smaller Nordic tipis, is sufficient if temperature is only a few degrees below zero.

Large enough for making big fires. Good for Nordic tipi size 7 and larger. When packed flat, it’s so small and compact it can be taken everywhere.

Lawns, sensitive forestland or stone slabs are effectively protected from scorching and on snow, the stand prevents the firebox from sinking because of the heat. It also prevents Hekla 30 from tipping over when the grate (accessory for Hekla 30) is used as a protruding shelf for keeping food warm.
The tent floor must always be folded away when the fire box stand is used.

Any size of Hekla and a grate for Hekla 30 fit inside the stand after it has been folded down to a compact unit.
