Choose your experience
By going on the Airbnb Adventures website, you can either choose your experience by region, whether it be Africa and the Middle East, or particular adventures around the world. Witness the Golden deserts in Oman, the ancient ruins of Jordan, or immerse yourself in the world's most silent place.
By clicking on the experience, you'll be provided with an overview of the experience, a full itinerary and the an indication of activity level. They'll also provide you with a list of what's included in the cost, a bit about the hosts and the langauge it's hosted in.
While Airbnb facilitate the access, they leave it up to the local experts to carefully create the experiences for you, so you can rest assured that whatever you'll do, it'll be authentic.
