WHAT TO EXPECT/ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Have you ever heard the buzzing sound around a beehive? Or smelled the fragrant scent of bee wax or propolis or the odour that bees emit when they’re at work? With the help of a beekeeper, you can experience all this for yourself as you get a close up look of a beehive to discover all the secrets of this fascinating world.
The thrill of being close to a beehive is an exciting experience that reawakens your senses and strengthens your sense of self. Your beekeeper guide will enhance this experience and provide you with useful information and interesting facts. After the activity, you can visit the bee museum for further information on the world of bees and beekeeping.
WHO ARE WE
MMape, is more than just a museum, it can best be described as a beehive made up of a group of local, young people that are committed to the sustainable development of the valley.
WHAT WE SUPPY
We will supply professional protective gloves and a mask just like those that a beekeeper uses and you’ll also get to sample locally produced honey that has been made with love by Val di Sole’s bees and beekeepers
All equipment and protective gear has been previously sanitized and disinfected according to Covid-19 regulations.
A dispenser and biodegradable single use products will be used to sample honey.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
This activity is suitable for families and all those who are interested in learning more about this special world.
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian and they must be 6 years or older.
You must wear full length pants or closed toe shoes. To enjoy a safe experience, avoid using perfume, aftershave products or any products with a strong scent before the activity (bees communicate through odours and some of ours may send the wrong message).
Always bring your face mask with you that you will have to wear under your beekeeper protective gear that we will supply.
