The ability to have an open fire inside the tentipis is a unique experience. The comfort and pro groundsheet allows the centre to be folded back so the fire sits directly on the ground.
Tentipi have cleverly designed their own Hekla Fire Box which not only folds flat for transportation but has been designed in such a way to burn logs and fuel more efficiently, therefore reducing the amount of smoke produced.
Large holes in the base of the box allow more air intake and the box should be propped on stones or branches to allow airflow and keep the box off the ground.
The Hekla Fire Box is available in two sizes and of course can be used as a cooker and barbecue on picnics and other events.
Tentipi Hekla 30 is large enough to make big fires in and good for tentipi size 7 and larger. When packed, it's so small and compact it can be taken everywhere. For permanent installation use, it will provide better fire control as well as make cooking easier.
Care should always be taken when using a fire in a tent and should never be left unattended.
