A road-tripping German woman was rescued from the treacherous Norwegian wilderness when she set up a Tinder account — and enlisted help from one of her matches, according to a report Friday.

Lonia Haeger, a pro kite surfer and self-styled “adventurer,” was traveling through the remote Nordkapp region in a camper van with two friends when they became stranded on the side of a mountain by a deluge of freezing rain, according to Central European News.

She soon learned emergency responders were too far away to help them quickly, so she set up the location-based dating app to hunt for a nearby, potentially helpful bachelor. Not long after setting up the profile, she matched with bearded local guy Stian Lauluten — who quickly showed up with a bulldozer and helped her cut a safe path through the ice.

The lure of sex can draw in rescuers when a simple call for assistance cannot.

Hi, do you like girls and do you drive a bulldozer?

She needs to marry him. Or at least give him the night of his life.

Kite surfing in the freezing rain?

Making a booty call from a camper on the side of an icy hill, with two other "companions" along for the ride?

My life is so boring.

Rubbing two *whats* together?

Bet they generated a lot of heat, though.

Apparently her other two "companions" were not Boy Scouts.

May have been Brownies.

Hmmm... she’s cute and likes dogs judging from the pictures. And she’s resourceful. She’s a keeper.

If this is Stian’s Instagram account, I need to find a way over there, myself.

May not have been the kind of plowing originally intended.

Somebody should let Greta Thumberg know. Such enormous carbon footprint on a wintry Norwegian countryside and in the name of such mundane adventurism, should not be tolerated.

If you look at his account, the man is a Viking god.

He looks like someone who would go save a damsel in distress, just because.

Worked in the oilfields of Wyoming and North Dakota years ago. Each winter people died due to car failure. Those that died were just a few miles from a main road and just thought they could walk out to help. Exposure killed them. Those that were many miles away knew they could not walk out and just stayed in their car or truck. They did not die.

In my car I had a sleeping bag, food and water. I could last days if necessary.
