Airbnb now helps you find cool things to do in a new city, not just places to stay. Like in London, where there’s so much to see and eat, you can do it all while without forgoing your health and fitness regimen. With the Lycra Sisters, three local fitness experts, you’ll embark on a two-day work out so you can work up an appetite for delicious and nutritious eating. Join them on a scenic 5k jog along the London’s hidden paths. Then learn how to fuel up properly with market-fresh ingredients. You’ll also get exclusive access to the ultra-cool 1Rebel gym for a high-intensity training session. Of course, no workout is complete without the ultimate reward: a well-deserved brunch with you new partners in health.

Madara and her husband built their guest cottage in Porvoo like a traditional Finnish mökki, with wood from the forest. “Finnish people put a lot of love into their homes because we spend so much time inside,” she says, and it’s evident all in the thoughtful details from the lofted bed to the minimalist sauna. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now you can find things to do on Airbnb, not just places to stay. Led by local experts, these experiences can take you beneath a city’s surface. Here in Barcelona, you can cruise past all the restaurants advertising authentic paella and join cooking teacher Sara in her family’s hidden garden for a master class on the real thing. Following her grandmother’s recipe, you’ll use fresh ingredients to prepare slow-cooked sofrito and stock—just two of the factors that distinguish true paella from the pretenders. As the flavors gradually deepen, you’ll learn more about the dish over tapas and wine. Once you’ve savored the masterpiece you’ve helped create, and maybe downed an espresso or two, Sara can point you to the best spots to dance it off.

Nosy neighbors are the only downside of this seaside hideout rebuilt from the ruins of two stone cottages. For a little privacy, slip into town and grab a back table at O’Dowd’s, which has been serving locally caught seafood for longer than anyone can remember.

When you’re introducing kids to a new experience like camping, it can be smart to try a “training wheels” option first. This well-equipped tipi near Joshua Tree National Park provides all the wilderness with almost none of the discomfort. Try to make sure everyone goes to bed early, though, because the sunrise here is anything but basic.

농장에서 갓 꺼낸 달걀로 만든 아침. 그리고 이 보다 신선한, 집에서 로스팅한 포틀랜드 커피. 알버타 아트 지역(Alberta Arts District)에 있는 에어비앤비에 머물러서 더 좋은 것은, 몇분만 걸어도 수많은 로컬 샵을 만날 수 있다는 것이다.
When the eggs for your breakfast come straight from the chickens in your yard - your coffee had better be fresh, too. Pick up some house-roasted beans from Extracto, one of dozens of great local spots within a short walk of this tiny house near the Alberta Arts District. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Like the Hawthorne neighborhood itself, this guest house has eclectic surprises everywhere you look. Hop on an orange city bike from the rack across the street and head to Quarterworld for beer and ’90s arcade games. Pro tip: drain an Oly for courage before confronting Ninja Baseball Batman.

Now you can find things to do on Airbnb, not just places to stay. One of the best ways to get a feel for a city is to hang out with local creators. Here in L.A., Funsize Ceramics owner (and patron saint of patience) Kathryn will guide you through the pottery process, whether you've "thrown" before or not. A few hours behind the wheel in her Laurel Canyon studio will give you not only a firm grasp of essential techniques, but also several pieces of your own. Once they’ve firmed up in the sun, Kathryn will fire them and send them to you.

Outside, you’re surrounded by rice terraces, volcanoes, and a lush jungle. Inside you have all the comforts of an urban loft, with huge windows that offer sweeping views of your tranquil villa escape––all day, every day. The best part: a huge kitchen where you can practice dishes you learned from a local cooking class, like betutu, chicken that's slow-roasted in banana leaves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

With a window view of a picturesque 17th-century canal, you’ll never forget that you’re waking up in Amsterdam. See the canal up close on your walk to the many art and architecture museums nearby. Continue enjoying the view at Cafe Orloff, while having a beer and a plate of bitterballen outside. It’s a sight that’s definitively Dutch, and inspired world-famous artists like Vermeer and Van Gogh.

Whether you’re biking through the palm tree-lined streets or people-watching on the boardwalk, you’ll likely work up a tan––and an appetite. Follow the crowds to Gjusta where the food is always delicious and Instagram-worthy. If there’s a baklava croissant left, go for it. You’ll want to snack on this pistachio- and honey-layered pastry during your 2-mile long shopping spree through Abbot Kinney, the neighborhood’s trendiest block. ⠀

Riads are known for their intricately tiled courtyards and lush private suites, and this one delivers on both counts. But on a cool spring morning, this rooftop corner might be its primo lounging spot.

Say you’re in Singapore with an itch to do something creative. Why not spend an afternoon with Trudy, a calligrapher and designer who runs the local studio and shop Poptsie Paper Co.?

Then you’ll head around the corner to her studio, where you’ll learn calligraphy fundamentals and create your own card or note to take home, sweetened by your choice of delicate botanicals.

Figuring out what to do in a new city can be puzzling. Local Airbnb hosts like Alexandra can help. When it comes to hiking in San Francisco, she wrote the book (literally: “Urban Trails: San Francisco”). You’ll hike with her and a few other guests along the city’s Pacific Coast, from the Cliff House to the Golden Gate. Along the way, you’ll reach the heart of the Lands End Labyrinth, stroll on Baker Beach, and see some of the city’s most spectacular views, both on and off the beaten path.

This old cottage captures the laid-back elegance that draws so many visitors here, famous and otherwise. If you wear shades and a scarf on your walk to Butterfly Beach, locals might assume you’re yet another celebrity taking refuge (but note that they won’t be too impressed either way). Ditch your imaginary paparazzi by ducking into Bree’osh for a hazelnut pastry and Handlebar coffee.

Now you can book things to do with locals on Airbnb, not just places to stay. After a couple of days with Natalie, a prominent Cape Town blogger, you’ll feel right at home here. You’ll start by checking out the street art of Woodstock, her vibrant neighborhood, and maybe popping into the neighborhood brewing co-op for a beer. That night, you’ll enjoy a hearty Cape Malay meal in Natalie’s home, prepared by her neighbors. The next day, you’ll set out for the wine country, where you might do a private tasting, explore the cellars, or meet winemakers. Every experience is unique; the only sure thing is that you’ll end up with a couple of bottles and a few new friends.

If waking up in a luxurious tent sitting on the edge of Olympic National Park isn’t on your bucket list, it’s time to make a few updates. Fill your days exploring the surrounding 7 acres, picking berries for breakfast, hiking through the cascading moss of the park’s Hoh River trail, and sitting by the wood stove to take in the panoramic view that stretches from Puget Sound to Vancouver Island and beyond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Festivities are in full swing as the community in Antigua, Guatemala gathers to create “alfrombras” or carpets made of colored sawdust and local flowers. Each year the carpets get more and more unique with the local pastry shop making one out of bread and the chocolate museum making one of cacao seeds.
The best is when your host invites you to join in on the fun.

Now, you can book a place to stay and interesting things to do too. Large cities like Cape Town gets easier to navigate when you let locals take the lead, like Ayanda and Buntu, founders of a community-building initiative centered around sports. First, join them on a 6 km run from Khayelitsha Township’s highest point to the Spinach King, a hotspot where spinach reigns supreme. On day two, practice layups with kids who’ll keep you on your toes in a game of one-on-one. Finally, day three entails the ultimate party––a traditional barbecue known as shisa nyama where you’ll get to kick up your well worn shoes for the much-deserved chill time. After all, it’s Ayanda and Buntu’s world and you’re just running around in it, so get all the rest you need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Now you can find things to do on Airbnb, not just places to stay. These experiences are hosted by locals like Andy, a seasoned trail and mountain runner who holds several New Zealand titles. The easy part: helicoptering with him from Queenstown deep into the Ben Lomond wilderness. The hard part: running your way out. The reward: a leisurely descent back to town on the Skyline Gondola, which is spectacular even without raging endorphins.

More guests have been popping up in Porvoo, Finland than ever before. To find out why, we went straight to the source: our Airbnb hosts. Swipe left to see what we uncovered in this historic creative hub, teeming with fairytale forests, an emerging Finnish foodie scene, and nights of kalsarikännit (that’s the Finnish word for drinking at home with no pants on).
Whether it’s through the floor-to-ceiling windows or from the outdoor hot tub, this historic property offers unobstructed views of Bennett Valley’s bests––acres of meadowland, natural hot springs, and wildlife––right in the heart of California wine country. Work up a sweat hiking through Taylor Mountain Regional Park, then unwind inside this minimalist chic abode with a glass of vino. It’s like experiencing the great outdoors without really having to rough it.
However if roughing it is your thing, watch our IG story as we go around the world through the great outdoors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Now you can find things to do in Cuba on Airbnb, not just places to stay. Join two University of Havana professors for a two-day immersion in Cuban life that’s anything but academic. You’ll start by tracing a Habanero’s typical daily journey. The next day, you’ll visit a working farm in the countryside—and possibly catch your lunch in the river—before returning to the city for a night of dancing at whatever spot is hottest that night. Along the way, you’ll drink your fill of local juices, coffee, and rum, and get to know your hosts, their friends and family, and your fellow travelers. Tip: try to schedule this for the start of your trip so you can put all your new local knowledge to use.
