Airbnb Adventures Hit the Next Level

Companies like Airbnb are constantly trying to come up with the next idea – the next way to get customers in the door. In addition to offering places to stay around the world, they also offer all sorts of experiences. So you can sign up to learn to make pizza in Italy, to skydive with the locals in Peru and to ice skate in Norway.

Now, you can also fulfill dreams you may not have even known you had. Have you always wanted to stay in the house from the hit movie “Up” and actually be carried above the ground as if you were being pulled by balloons? The are calling these opportunities icons and, as Brian Chesky, Airbnb co-founder and CEO explains, “As life becomes increasingly digital, we’re focused on bringing more magic into the real world. With Icons, we’ve created the most extraordinary experiences on Earth.”

They will be rolling these Icon ideas out over time, but a few of them have definitely been rolled out already and include wild opportunities such as enjoying the “Up” house. Other fun ideas include having a VIP evening with Kevin Hart, staying in Prince’s “Purple Rain” house, enjoy paying Fortnite with TikToker Khaby Lame or ride along on the tour bus with reggaeton and his FERXXOCALPSIS world tour.

These are just a few of the incredible opportunities that will be available to people who have the money to throw at such adventures!
