Vihe Vaellus – Finnish brand founded in 1979

Specialists in lean-to shelters and tarps

Based in Finland, we manufacture light-weight tarp shelters and camping accessories. Our products represent Nordic wilderness tradition at its best. Vihe shelters are designed to be used with a camp fire in front of them, and serve as a light and functional alternative to a tent – with the added bonus of bringing you closer to the surrounding nature. Perfect for bushcraft, hiking, backpacking, survival, hunting, fishing, scouts and camping.

All our products are handmade in Finland.

Vihe Vaellus proudly boasts the Key Flag symbol of the Association for Finnish Work as a demonstration of our products being manufactured in Finland.
