The Adventure Club


THIRDHOME is the luxury property and travel club that enables its travelers to explore the world through a variety of travel experiences. Originally a luxury home exchange, it has evolved into the only travel brand that brings together a collective of trusted home owners, renters and adventurers who share a passion for discovery and demand an elevated experience.


Adventures are small–group organized luxury tours curated by THIRDHOME Custom Travel with set departure dates. THIRDHOME Adventures are available to our Adventure Club and THIRDHOME Exchange members, along with their family and friends. Each Adventure features a unique itinerary, blending special hosts with coveted experiences and local insider access. Some Adventures will be hosted by celebrities, while others will be hosted by experts in their field, such as renowned conservationists, photographers, entertainers or chefs.  Each Adventure is a transformative and luxury-filled journey like no other.

What travelers are saying…

We cannot speak highly enough of this experience and the unbelievable attention to detail by THIRDHOME. It is unusual to travel for a week and find nothing to fault. The movement of a group of 30 people was seamless and smooth and the itinerary was extremely well rounded and considered. Our Cuba experience was both memorable and influential. There was literally nothing to “complain” about and I am quite certain that few people receive the kind of cultural exposure that we did. It completely altered my perspective on the country.” We would not hesitate for a minute to travel with THIRDHOME Adventures again.”

The THIRDHOME Amazon trip was terrific—not only an excellent travel experience with all details planned to perfection, it was an opportunity to spend time with a great group of other THIRDHOME members with similar interests. Every experience was enhanced by being with a fun group to share it with. I highly recommend this new THIRDHOME travel program to anyone that enjoys unique travel opportunities.”

After traveling much of the world with very good assistance, nothing compares with the virtually perfect arrangements we experienced through Liz’s efforts. Liz took the time to learn all of the important factors about us as a family and individually created a vacation that was meaningful from beginning to end.”
