Book a Honey Bee Safari to learn about organic bee-keeping in northern Saimaa Lakeland. With the protective gear provided, you will be able to have an inside look of a bee hive. Every worker bee has its own important task. With a bit of luck, you may even see the queen bee. In the surroundings, we will look for plants that provide the nectar needed by the bees.
In between, we will enjoy a picnic. You will also get a taste of the bee hive: honey from the honeycomb, pollens and the nature’s antibiotic, propolis. You are also welcome to try bee drone larvae, if you feel brave enough.
Participants: 1 to 6 persons
Duration: 2 to 3 hours
Fee: 120 euros for up to 2 participants,
further participants 40 euros each
Fee covers guide, protective gear, honey tasting, picnic and a pot of local honey to take home.
Honey Bee Safaris can be booked for May to September. On rainy and cool days, the bee hives can only be opened for a quick look. In that case, we will spend more time indoors. Bring your own wellies or other protective footwear.
Welcome to the source of organic honey!
