You Can Book These Thrilling Next-Level Experiences Via Luxury Escapes

The best part of any holiday (besides the food) is planning all the amazing things you’ll do when you arrive (including eating all the food). Good news for everyone who packs their itinerary with as many fun experiences as possible: Luxury Escapes has just launched Experiences, a curated collection of handpicked activities you can do as you holiday around the world.

Luxury Escapes is a holiday booking platform with hotels, resorts, tours and cruises all over the world. And now when you use it to book a holiday, you’ll be able to add on some of the brand-new, and totally lush, Experiences.

If you went to Europe and didn’t get behind the wheel of a Ferrari, did you even go to Europe? Sports cars, helicopter rides and some of the fanciest dinners in the world are just some of the next-level adventures you can book on your next holiday.

Here are five of the best adventures you can book through Luxury Escapes Experiences:

#1 Drive a Ferrari through Barcelona

Do you have Fast & Furious dreams but live in Australia where it’s truly meaningless to drive a sports car? Make Vin Diesel proud in Barcelona, where you can book a half-day experience behind the wheel of a Ferrari.

Cruise down windy roads in a Ferrari California with an instructor by your side and stunning scenery all around. Soak it all in — this is the life. Climb the hairpin bends of Monserrat Mountain and take a totally casual pic of you and your new wheels at the summit. Instagram may have stopped counting likes but you know this is raking them in.


#2 Enjoy a 12-course degustation at Melbourne’s Vue de Monde

If you’re talking about fine-dining in Australia, you’re talking about Vue de Monde. Give your Melbourne getaway a major glow-up with a whopping 12-course degustation lunch or dinner.

Excuse me but 12-courses of some of the best food in Australia? And gorgeous skyline views from the 55th floor? And fancy-as-hell booze? You’ve just, like, got to do this.


#3 Go skydiving over Lake Taupo in New Zealand

We all know that New Zealand is gorgeous. And what better way to see its majestic mountains and sparkling lakes than from the air? With Luxury Escapes Experiences, you can go skydiving over Lake Taupo. I cannot even.

You’ll have time to calm your nerves before you jump with a 10-minute private helicopter ride. See the mighty Huka Falls, Waikato River, Aratiatia Dam and more of NZ’s monstrously beautiful sights before you jump out over the lake for a thrilling 60-second free-fall.


#4 Learn to cook like a local in Ubud

5 Exclusive Experiences You Can Book Through Luxury Escapes

Here we are, talking about food again. Don’t just work your way through Bali’s restaurants (but we’re definitely not saying you shouldn’t also do this) — instead, why not take a cooking class to learn how to make Balinese cuisine from the locals?

Local cooks will take you through the traditional methods they use to create delicious dishes, and then you’ll get to eat everything at the end! This is the real foodies deal.


#5 Explore Cape Town on a chauffeured vintage sidecar

If getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari is a bit much for you, why not hop in a vintage sidecar? It’s officially the cutest way to discover Cape Town.

You’ll suit up for the occasion and be chauffeured by a private driver through the ultra-glamorous coastal suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay. Enjoy the Cape Town sunshine and get the best seat in the house to admire the scenery. You’ll even make a pit stop for a traditional fish and chips lunch on the harbour before the day is out.
