What is apitourism?

Slovenia was the first country in the world to develop apitourism – an innovative tourist product that is a combination of tourism and beekeeping. It is a unique travel experience and a form of sustainable and responsible tourism that is closely related to the tradition of apiculture. There are currently 45 certified providers of apitourism services in Slovenia. We are also the only country in the world with beekeeping tourist guides.
