n. Tourism that is centered around bees and bee-related activities.
With the rise of all things eco, the idea of "apitourism" may seem too niche in its focus. Look deeper though and it’s all-encompassing in what it offers the discerning traveller.
Honeybee tourism, or Apitourism as it’s officially known, is unique to Slovenia. As a country that’s home to 9,600 beekeepers, 12,500 apiaries and nearly 170,000 hive colonies, it’s no wonder they’re the first — and only — country to certify Apitourism providers.
These safaris have proven to be a unique offering. They are the only known exclusive beekeepers' tour to the Caribbean and have added a new dimension to the regional tourism product, and possibly a new word to the tourism lexicon: 'api-tourism'.
Apitourism is by far most interesting, since the visitor will have the opportunity to enter in an apiary and personally experiencing the buzzing noise of bees, watching the beekeeper opening a beehive in front of him and pointing out interesting things to see.
