We love us some adventure every once in awhile. That's why we've put together this list of awesome Airbnb Experiences for 2022!
If there’s one thing being Millennial (and like…a worldwide pandemic) has taught us, it’s that e x p e r i e n c e s are the best. That’s part of why the DIY world is so appealing! Not only do you get to learn new skills from a super supportive community of amazing people from all over the world, but there’s just something so special about the experience of making something with your own two hands.
Even better when you’re furnishing your home with your creations! You just can’t box that feeling and ship it direct-to-consumer.
Savvilly leveraging our data-supported love for experiences, fellow peer-to-peer app, Airbnb, has built an entire service offering around it. SO, without further ado, we give you…
The Top 10 Airbnb Experiences of 2022
Harlem Jazz Crawl — New York, NY, USA
Manhattan tourist vibes be damned! See New York through the eyes of an underground jazz expert with the Harlem Jazz Crawl. Each crawl kicks off with a cultural walking tour of Harlem, brimming with education on the area and the evolution of jazz — plus experience two choice hidden jazz shows (or blues shows, if you venture out on Monday) and even snag a chance to perform yourself, if you’re a musician!
Downtown Sunset Kayak with 1.5M Bats! — Austin, TX, USA
Yup, you read that right: bats. Actual bats. The Downtown Sunset Kayak with 1.5M Bats! is “Austin's #1 booked tour” — for good reason.
This Experience starts in the evening, when the sun is just setting. You’ll embark on some gentle kayaking, paddling the full length of downtown Austin. The real stars, however, are THE BATS. The night culminates with a massive colony of bats flying overhead.
(Psst, if there’s bad weather you get a full refund!)
Hive to Spoon - Honey Bee Experience at Urban Farm — Davis, CA, USA
The Hive to Spoon - Honey Bee Experience at Urban Farm is a delicious Experience to say the very least. We all know bees are our friends, and this is a great way to see (and taste) that, first-hand.
You’ll spend the day touring the farm, acting as a beekeeper, and end with a honey-tasting experience — complete with seasonal fruit!
Hip Berlin Underground Tour — Berlin, Germany
The appropriately named Hip Berlin Underground Tour ties together several types of Berlin Experiences.
You’ll learn about Berlin’s various subcultures, explore street art, enjoy street food, visit markets, and hit the hottest clubs.
Bosphorus Boat Tour & Breakfast Street! — Istanbul, Turkey
We love the Bosphorus Boat Tour & Breakfast Street! for its lowkey luxe #lifestyle vibes. (I mean, you’re on a damn boat, for crying out loud.)
You’ll meet in front of the Maritime Museum in Beşiktaş, feast on some Turkish breakfast to get you ready for the adventure ahead, and enjoy a short walking tour of one of Istanbul’s hippest neighborhoods. From there, you can either “set sail” on a ferry or a private luxury yacht upgrade.
Once you’re on THE BOAT (still very hyped about this) you will cruise around the Bosphorus — a natural strait, internationally significant waterway, and a treasure of Istanbul.
Walking Tour with Goats in Provence — Valensole, France
The adorably named Walking tour with goats in Provence is absolutely everything you want it to be. You. And goats. Walking together in perfect harmony.
Your Experience will start on the farm, where you’ll meet all kinds of animals. Pigs, chickens, cats, and dogs will greet and #bless you with their cuddly cuteness. Then, finally, you walk with the goats… (There are at least ten of them, by the way.)
Explore the French countryside, enjoying views of Mount Ventoux and Mount Lure, right alongside Heidrun, Amalthée, Madi, Cérynie, Thrud, Skadi, Sanne, Bonnie, Maximus, and Léonidas. (Yes, those are their names. 🐐)
Pastel de Nata Workshop in Lisbon — Lisbon, Portugal
If you haven’t died of cute overload, congratulations. On to some delicious stuff: The Pastel de Nata Workshop in Lisbon is a literal treat. You’ll spend your time immersing yourself in everything…custardy.
The pastel de nata is a famous hallmark of Portuguese cuisine. You’ll learn about its history, cultural significance — and how to make it from scratch! The Experience is, of course, topped with a tasting, complete with local liqueurs.
PASTAMANIA — Florence, Italy
With 4,733 reviews, this is one of the most-rated Experiences we’ve found — which isn’t surprising, since…pasta.
This Experience is all about making pasta from scratch, and enjoying it at a table with others. You’ll make and eat various pastas, and drink some otherworldly Italian wine.
Worth noting: This Experience is hosted in seven different languages!
Traditional Balinese Cooking Class — Bali, Indonesia
Yes. Let’s keep eating. The Traditional Balinese Cooking Class is a 4.5 hour Experience that starts at the market and ends at the table — a full, end-to-end culinary adventure.
As you pick your ingredients from the market, you will be educated on their uses and connection with the local culture. You’ll then cook what you’ve picked up using traditional techniques you’ll learn from your guides.
The Experience ends with some good ol’ eating. Vegetarian options are also available!
Comuna Trece Graffiti Tour Guided By Locals — Medellín, Colombia
If you want an immersive and robust taste of Medellín, Colombia, the Comuna Trece Graffiti Tour Guided By Locals is the Experience for you.
It starts with a bus ride to the neighborhood called 20 de Julio. Next, you’ll be swept into the mountains before paying a visit to the host’s grandmother for delicious local treats, and touring the streets — enjoying local food, exploring the city, seeing street-art, and learning about Medellín’s complex history.
