Friendly Api-retreats in Slovenia

The passion for bees in Slovenia has a long tradition. Slovenia is the homeland of the famous beekeeper Anton Janša (1734-1773), one of the pioneers of modern beekeeping. Visit his beehive in Žirovnica and honour his legacy on 20th May, when we celebrate Janša’s birthday and the initiative of World Bee Day. The country with love in its name and the home of the Carniola bee (Apis mellifera carnica), the second most widespread breed of bees in the world, is known for its history of apiculture, excellent apitourism facilities and specialised agencies.

Visit Slovenia, skilled in apitherapy treatments, and surround yourself by the hard-working Carniola bees in their beehives. The special cabin where the treatment takes place welcomes you with its wooden interior, equipped with comfortable chairs next to or on top of smaller beehives, which are separated from the bees to avoid stings. Relax, inhale the aerosols and feel the beneficial effects on your respiratory system and wellbeing. After only a couple of minutes, you will feel fresh and full of energy. With the help of an experienced apitherapist, set up your treatment plan and rejuvenate your whole body. Compliment the treatment with a spoon of sweet honey, straight from the honeycombs: floral, forest, dandelion, acacia, linden, or chestnut honey – they all taste delicious! The local beekeeper will gladly present many other bee products, beneficial to your health and also to your beauty. Join an organised tour of the biggest Slovenian provider of apitourism, ApiRoutes, and discover the rich Slovenian beekeeping heritage. Visit beehives in the Gorenjska and Štajerska regions and the beekeeping museums. Treat yourself to a unique experience in green, active and healthy Slovenia.
