Airbnb remains the leader in home-sharing holidays and is now adding to its range of offerings by venturing into the adventure-travel arena – a market that is currently worth around $683billion.
The holiday and travel platform is now offering customers access to experiences as well as accommodation through the new “Airbnd Adventures”. Customers can take the change to build some amazing memories. Some of the offerings include time in Arizona to hunt for UFOs or heading off to Oman or the Galapagos Islands.
Airbnb Adventures is a spin-off from the popular Airbnb Experiences. Where the Experiences would only last between for a few hours up to a full day, Adventures brings an immersive experience which lasts for days and up to a week. Along with the adventure, of course, comes food and lodging.
At present, there are around 200 Airbnb Adventures on offer. Some are exclusive to Airbnb but others are run through local operators advertising exclusively on the Airbnb Adventures platform. By signing up the traveler can enjoy a fully immersive experience along the road less traveled where they are free to experience, explore and create lifelong memories.
There is no problem with quality either; Airbnb has been advised by the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) in order to maintain the high quality and safety standards people expect.
For the more adventurous there is an opportunity for a Warrior boot camp in Kenya, hiking in Petra or a fully accessible trip to Easter Island. There is also a special Jules Verne inspired"Around the World in 80 Days" trip.
A small and intimate group will travel the world taking in the Nile and the Northern Lights, exploring Nairobi where they will meet the elephant singers and taking part in a Samurai pilgrimage near Osaka. These and other one-off opportunities are available to commemorate the launch of Airbnb Adventure and are available for the sum of $5,000 per person.
For those who want a more sedate pace Airbnb Adventures offer something a little more laid back – how does a weekend on an Anabaptist Farm in Indiana sound? The owners are happy to share the experience of collecting eggs, making jam and tending their garden as they renovate their 100-year old farm. A perfectly relaxing adventure.
