Become a Beekeeper for a Day in Nafplio
?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.? Albert Einstein

In this half-day excursion of honey we learn all the secrets of beekeeping by a proffesional beekeeper. We visit a traditional honey production unit and we are astonished by the well-structured bees\' society. We admire the magical world of the bees in their natural environment and get to taste the unique Greek varieties of honey.

We pick you up from our meeting point and we visit a small traditional beekeeping unit just outside Nafplio. We meet our local English speaking beekeeper who introduces us to the magical world of bees and beekeeping.

After a small theoretical briefing we wear the necessary protective uniforms and we hike in the natural environment of bees, where our lungs fill up with spectacular smells from the surroundings flowers. The beekeeper introduces us to the art of beekeeping and bees? society. He shows us the queen of the beehive and how the worker bees follow its orders while the drones (male bees) ?do nothing?. We see how the bees collect pollen form flowers and convert it to fresh honey, storing it inside the beehive.

After this unique experience we go back to the beekeeping unit and we taste delicious varieties of honey and Greek traditional sweets with pure Greek honey as the main ingredient.

We then take the road back for our departure point.
