A lucky few will be able to live out the adventures of Phileas Fogg from Jules Verne’s classic Around The World In 80 Days. Hosted by Airbnb, a small number of guests will travel across 18 countries using eight modes of transportation, including a hot air balloon, to promote a new collection of available bookings called Airbnb Adventures. The experience is meant to mirror Fogg’s journey from exploring the Galapagos islands to hiking mountain ranges in Australia.

Starting June 20th, guests can book the 80-day trip, which comes with a price tag of $5,000 and includes all travel, lodging, activities and meals. The company chose to recreate the story of Around The World In 80 Days because it encompasses the spirit of the new program. Airbnb Adventures allows people to participate in 2 to 10-day treks ranging from $79 to $5,000. Other bookings include searching for Sasquatch in Washington and trekking the Amazon.
