Best beekeeping destinations
"Like every religious person should visit Israel once in their life-time, Slovenia is must for every true beekeeper." (Gilles Ratia, former Apimondia president)
In Slovenia beekeeping is considered to be the poetry of agriculture. It is not marely keeping bees for their honey, but much more. It is a way of life. Its diversity has ensured that Slovenia is a paradise for bees, whilst beekeeping forms an important element of Slovenian culture. Slovenia is home to the Carniolan bee (Apis mellifera carnica) and is a place, where many internationally respected pioneers of apiculture were born or worked, a cradle of modern apitherapy and a land of more than 12 500 bee houses. In cooperation with Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association we provide api excursions to Slovenia – a must do for every beekeeper. Beside excursions to Slovenia we offer tours to other most wanted beekeeping destionations worldwide.
