Alpacka Rafts

When two gentleman who grew up in the wilds get together, the results are a wonderful conversation on experiences in the backcountry and the proper use of equipment.  When both of these gentlemen are small business owners you gain great insight into what drives their passion to make high quality gear.  Meet Thor Tingey, Founder and CEO of Alpacka Rafts, a family owned company in Manco Colorado. 

About Alpacka Rafts

Today, every Alpacka Raft packraft is manufactured by hand in our Mancos, Colo., factory by skilled craftsmen and women that are dedicated to their craft. The current models are the product of years of experiments, re-design, and great feedback from the boating community.

Sheri remains our head designer. Thor rejoined the company in 2016 as the Chief Executive Officer, handling our day-to-day operations, strategic planning, and design assistance. And Thor’s wife, Sarah is the Chief Operating Officer, doing everything from planning outreach events, to partnering with nonprofits, to giving Sheri’s latest creation a whirl on the water. On any given day, up to 50% of our shop staff may be dogs.

We continue to build tiny, little boats for those who demand something unreasonable from them. Our designs and innovation have refined and defined the sport, and with the help of adventurers all over the world, pushed packrafting further than we ever thought possible.

Petra Hilleberg

Learn all about Hilleberg tents from, quite possibly, the nicest CEO and President on the planet.


IN 1971, BO HILLEBERG, a professional forester, founded his own company, Hilleberg AB. That same year, while on a ski vacation in the Austrian Tyrol, Bo met Renate Neuner. After a couple of years, the two had fallen in love, married, and she had moved with him to Stockholm, Sweden. Their marriage was the final, necessary ingredient in the mix that has become Hilleberg the Tentmaker.

Before Renate, Bo’s fledgling company was primarily a forestry equipment concern, with tent making as a hoped-for sideline. An avid, lifelong outdoorsman, Bo was terminally frustrated with tents that required pitching the inner tent first and then covering it with a loose rain fly that usually displayed the same properties as a kite in the wind. He envisioned a tent that had an outer and inner tent that pitched together, simultaneously – but he didn’t have the necessary sewing skills. With Bo and Renate’s marriage, conjugal and commercial became one: Renate took charge of the sewing while Bo handled design and sales, and with their combined efforts, the company flourished.

Today, family and business are still inextricably linked. Bo is Chairman, and is senior advisor to the product development team; daughter Petra is CEO of the Hilleberg Group, President of both Hilleberg AB in Sweden and Hilleberg Inc in the US; and Bo, Renate, Petra and her brother Rolf make up the governing board of directors – clearly, family synergy continues to beget success.

After a lifetime of outdoor adventures leading to multiple industry firsts in comfort and longevity in the backcountry, Patrick Smith finally found worthy successors to carry on the torch of Kifaru.  Truly a bittersweet moment in the lives of Patrick and Sarah Smith, who built two companies, MountainSmith from their garage, and Kifaru for serious backcountry hunters.  May we all learn from Patrick's wisdom and carry on producing gear worthy of the Kifaru brand.
