And now these trips are bookable exclusively on Airbnb and Atlas Obscura.

Atlas Obscura Experiences and Adventures prices range from $25 to $7,000. Guests can choose between 32 Experiences and 14 Adventures in more than 10 countries that blend wonder with wanderlust, taking you far beyond your typical tour or class.

We can’t wait to introduce our global community to some of these amazing adventures and experiences.” – Airbnb Vice President and Head of Experiences Joe Zadeh.

Bottom Line: combatting price wars with exclusive / superior products.
