Riparide allows guests to curate a vacation itinerary based on nearby experiences. The experience-driven platform then saves these personalized and unique itineraries created by other guests so future guests can browse these same itineraries and make an adventure of their own. In essence, guests can choose their adventure.


Unlike other traditional accommodation-booking websites found in many cities, Riparide encourages city dwellers to take a break from the busy urban life and escape into nature. In immersing travelers in more natural environments, Riparide not only provides guests with a much-needed break but also allows guests to end their vacations feeling more fulfilled.

From a stay at Treehouse Packwood, a Scandinavian-inspired A-frame cabin in Mount Rainier, Washington, to a peaceful Island Getaway Cottage in Clinton, The Islands, Washington, guests can choose from a wide variety of accommodations. Riparide also offers accommodations in Australia and New Zealand. In addition to serving as a platform for guests looking to find the perfect retreat, Riparide also invites users to become hosts, bringing more properties to life for others seeking respite and peace.
