Finnish matchmaking application brings British travellers together

House of Lapland, an organization promoting tourism in Finnish Lapland, has launched an application called The Lapland Travel Buddy Finder. The app, aimed especially at British travellers, helps find likeminded travel companions. One of the “matches” found by the application will travel to Lapland for a vacation of a lifetime.

Discovering and sharing the magic of Lapland

Lapland is known as the mysterious land of northern lights, but it’s also a modern travel destination with a wide range of services and activities. “With The Lapland Travel Buddy Finder we want to give an idea of all the different sides of Lapland”, says Maija Loikkanen, the Marketing Director of House of Lapland. “Moreover, we want to help people find a great travel companion with whom to share the experience,” she emphasizes.

How does it work?

The application is easy to activate and simple to use. After answering a handful of questions related to travelling and leisure-time interests, each user gets suggestions for potential travel buddies. It’s up to the user whether to accept a travel buddy candidate or not – with each “match” one has the chance to win a trip to Lapland. The application is accessible until the end of February and can be found at

For any and all kinds of travellers in the UK

The application is meant for anyone in Great Britain interested in travelling and Lapland; the participation is in no way restricted to singles or a certain demographic. The purpose is solely to connect people sharing the same vision of a perfect Lapland vacation. Additionally, “if two people happen to find lifelong friendship through us – we certainly don’t object”, Loikkanen smiles.

The prize: Discovering Lapland in great company

From all the matches one pair is raffled and awarded a trip to Lapland including flights, accommodation and a variety of activities. “To many people, heading to the Arctic Circle with a new travel buddy may seem quite adventurous, so to make it more comfortable and maximize the fun, both of the winners get to bring a friend along.”Highlights of the prize-trip and greetings from the winner team will be published in House of Lapland’s social media channels.
