Stavanger, Norway

The only boat listed in the Stavanger area on Airbnb, “Shamal” is a Maxi Fenix sailboat that is sure to offer an incredibly unique experience in Norway. Book for four nights and your hosts will take you on a free trip to watch the stars or to the islands around Stavanger. View the boat here.

Queenstown, New Zealand

Queenstown’s stunning scenery and a wide range of activities make one of the top traveler’s destinations in New Zealand, and we love the idea of staying on a boat for an off-the-beaten-path experience of the town. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out AJ Hackett Bungy Jumping – Kawarau Bridge, which is just about 3 1/2 miles from Pacific Jemm. View the boat here.
