Dome or tunnel

Here at Bergans, we often get asked about choosing the right type of tent. What are the differences between a tunnel tent and a dome tent? And which is best-suited to what? Here are the answers.

Tunnel tents

Tunnel tents are constructed with two or more poles which bend to form a tunnel. Their simple construction that makes them quick to pitch and take down. The biggest advantage of tunnel tents is that they are light relative to their size. Tunnel tents often also have spacious awnings, providing ample space for storing luggage and cooking. With their long side walls, tunnel tents are more sensitive to wind. A good tip is therefore to avoid pitching tunnel tents across the wind direction.

Dome tents

Dome tents have a more advanced design with more poles, which also cross each other. This means that this type of tent is slightly heavier than a tunnel tent, and is a little more challenging to pitch. On the other hand, the dome construction makes for a more taut tent which is more stable in the wind without the canvas fluttering and beating. Dome tents often also have a good ceiling height and several entrances, making them suited for use as a base camp. Our Wiglo dome tent also enables you to roll up the side walls for easy access in and out, not to mention panoramic views.

When choosing a tent, should you therefore consider the kind of trip you are going on? If you are going far, you might consider choosing a tunnel tent because it is lighter, but if you’re going on a trip somewhere windy and exposed, taking a heavier tent might be worth the trouble for a good night’s sleep. Whichever type of tent you choose, it’s a good idea to allow plenty of space. Bags, clothes and other equipment often take up more space than you think.
