Meet the Tripsters
Tripsteri is the most complete Travel Media Company in Finland founded in 2015 by professional journalists, most of whom have worked as travel writers for the majority of their life. We publish digital- and printed travel guides, mobile apps and travel podcasts. Our website is fueled by a community of independent travel writers from over 30 destinations, see: www.tripsteri.fi.
Tripsteri App has started its journey in Helsinki in 2017, and now we are broadening to neighboring Stockholm. The App is available in English, Finnish and soon also in Japanese!
Tripsteri’s recommendations are honest yet sustainable, and we write with a tongue-in-cheek style, without being preachy. Our target groups are both foreign and domestic visitors, as well as the inhabitants of the destination that want to rediscover their hometown or build tours for friends coming to visit.
We invest in high-quality journalism, authentic travel experiences and the power of storytelling. We make experiences lively with well-curated text, beautiful pictures and virtual/augmented reality technology.
The Tripsteri App has won several awards, including the 2017 Uutisraivaaja innovation grant from the Helsingin Sanomat Foundation, and second place in the 2018 Visit Finland Digital-Innovation contest. We are members of the Finnish Association for Sustainable Tourism and we also have a Certificate of Sustainable Tourism Course from Perho Business College.
