Host an experience on Airbnb

Earn money leading people on activities you love.

What’s an experience?

It’s an activity that goes beyond the typical tour or class, designed and led by locals all over the world. Show off your city, craft, cause, or culture by hosting an experience.

Create an activity, your way

Food tour by bike, light photography at night, tapas on a boat, or yoga (with goats). Create and curate a unique activity people want to try.

Do what you love (and get paid)

Scout for street art or surf at sunset, turn your passion into profit. Earn money without it feeling like a job.

Get voices for your cause

Lead a hike with rescue dogs, or teach ethical fashion. Raise awareness of your cause in a whole new way.

Show what you know

Experiences of every kind, like cooking, crafting, kayaking, and more. There’s no limit to what you can do. Explore these featured categories.
