Visit a traditional Cretan bee-garden and learn all the secrets of this famous local product firsthand. Together with a specialized insider guide, you will drive to a beautiful apiary, situated right at the foot hills of the White Mountains.

An experienced bee keeper will welcome you and your family and provide you with the necessary protective hats. As soon as you are all suited up, he will accompany you to the bee hives and explain to you and your kids how a bee hive functions and what are the different stages of honey making.

Especially during spring time, the area is blossoming with thyme and other flowering herbs, which as you will discover, are the main ingredients of the savory Cretan honey. Don’t miss the chance to pick some aromatic herbs while listening to the buzzing sounds of the bees. Try to spot the queen bee and then sample some honey directly from the bee hive! Your family visit to the bee garden will end with a light traditional lunch at the beekeeper’s house, where you will enjoy various local dishes accompanied with Cretan raki and of course delicious honey deserts
