Airbnb, the popular online rental service, has announced that it will soon launch a “wilderness tour” guide that will let guests take a virtual tour of its more than a dozen national parks, hiking trails and mountain climbing destinations.
The company, which has grown from a fledgling company in 2005 to the world’s largest provider of accommodation in the U.S. in 2014, is now the world leader in offering free outdoor adventures to its more and more popular users.
In an announcement on Thursday, Airbnb said the guide will begin in early 2017, with a planned launch date in 2019.
The guide will be offered for free to guests on Airbnb in the following states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Airbnb, which launched in 2005 as a way to make renting homes more affordable, has expanded to include more than 2,000 vacation rentals, hotels and hostels, providing a service that offers the same quality of service and benefits as other platforms, including its popular short-term rentals and vacation homes.
For more than five years, Airbnb has focused on the services that have helped it earn the reputation as one of the most innovative companies on the planet, according to the company’s website.
It offers its platform as an open platform, allowing guests to rent homes and hostess to share their experiences with guests.
In addition to offering vacation rentals and hostel rentals, the company offers its own business model for its hosts and guests to sell their properties.
Airbus, which began as a platform for renting apartments, has grown into a platform that offers accommodation in more than 600 cities and towns in 30 countries.
