Atlas Obscura is a global community of explorers, who have together created a comprehensive database of the world’s most wondrous places and foods – 21,667 of them contributed by the community so far – from a secret apartment atop the Eiffel Tower to bridges built out of living roots, from a temple shaped like a chicken to an island ruled by cats, from a fruit that tastes like chocolate pudding to a spicy chutney made out of red ants.
The platform also host local experiences, in nine U.S. cities. Atlas Obscura Societies create intimate, wondrous experiences for its community. From back-room tours to workshops with the world’s most remarkable people, they want to give its community access to the rarest experiences. Since the pandemic and restrictions in gathering, the platform now also offers online experiences and courses.
This kind of business is very popular as it answers to individuals growing need for experiences and uniqueness. Indeed people love learning and doing unusual activities more than they enjoy buying things.
