Imagine what it would be like to retreat to the countryside for weeks at a time with only the bees and the meadows of fragrant flowers as your company. Join your knowledgeable, English-speaking guide on a trip to a thriving apiary and get ready for a fascinating beekeeping immersion. 

Start your apiary tour with a detailed beekeeping lesson. Study the behavior of the bees and learn some key facts about bee lifecycle and habitat necessary to being a successful beekeeper. Watch a mesmerizing demonstration of the harvesting process and learn how a beehive works firsthand. Get to know the different products that can be harvested from the hive, including honey, propolis, beeswax, pollen, bee bread, and bee venom.
