Apitourism (also known as bee tourism) gives a fresh approach to eco conscious travel. It invites you on a journey into the fascinating world of bees, presenting you with the country’s cultural heritage and natural beauty.
In Slovenia, a country of unique apiculture with a long beekeeping tradition, apitourism offers a new kind of holiday with a positive impact.
Slovenia was labelled the “heart and soul of beekeeping” in Europe. The country is known for the quality of its honey and its long tradition of apiculture.
Experience the tradition of Slovenian beekeeping in the beautiful towns of Bled, Bohinj, Žirovnica, Kranjska Gora, Gorje, Radovljica in the Alpine region of Gorenjska (Upper Carniola), Slovenia.
We all have an obligation to ensure our future generations will have a clean and healthy environment and nutrient-rich foods available, for which bees and other pollinators play a crucial role.
In order to raise awareness about the importance of bees and bee products, the Beekeepers Association of Slovenia with the support of the Republic of Slovenia, gave the initiative at the United Nations Organization to mark the birthday of Anton Janša, May 20, as World Bee Day.
