What to Expect
“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
You will be picked up from the meeting point and taken to a small traditional beekeeping unit just outside Nafplio. Meet your local English-speaking beekeeper who will introduce you to the magical world of bees and beekeeping. After a small theoretical briefing, wear the necessary protective uniforms and hike in the natural environment of bees where your lungs will fill up with spectacular smells from the surroundings flowers.
The beekeeper will introduces you to the art of beekeeping and bee society. You will see the queen of the beehive and how the worker bees follow orders while the drones (male bees) “do nothing.” See how the bees collect pollen form flowers and convert it to fresh honey, storing it inside the beehive.
After this unique experience, go back to the beekeeping unit and taste some delicious varieties of honey and traditional Greet sweets with pure Greek honey as the main ingredient. Then, return back for your departure point.
