”KYPSÈLI”: THE BEE’s WORKSHOP

In Ktima Bellou we produce our own honey; bees pasture from the farm’s flowers, as well as Mt Olympus’ forest flora. Our beekeeper, Mr Dimitris Kotikas, initiates our guests to the magical world of “kypsèli” – the beehive workshop.

This activity is available exclusively to our hotel guests and takes place from May through September. 

The activity consists of three parts;

  • At first, the participants become acquainted with and taste bees’ products - pollen, propolis and different types of honey. At the same time, they are briefly introduced to the bee society receiving some basic knowledge about this magical world and get familiar with the inner workings and handling of the beehive.
  • At the second stage, guests donn the necessary protective equipment and visit our farm's beehives having an in situ practical experience in beekeeping and honey production.
  • In the final stage, participants prepare by themselves - and take home - a traditional beeswax ointment, using wax from the beehive and fragrant oils produced in the farm.
