After a brief apiary orientation, you will then don a full beekeeper suit and standard issued apiary gear. The journey continues with a tour of the apiary and surrounding woodland. Every tour offers opportunities for up close wildlife encounters, including native birds and animals that inhabit the tropical woodland forests of Upper Squamish Valley. Your professional guide will then lead you through a real inspection of an active beehive. You will get the opportunity to look for the elusive queen bee, spot emerging baby bees, and observe the mysterious inner workings of a living beehive. Before closing the hives you’ll get your own taste of local Squamish honey to take with you! While getting a first-hand education on the bees, you will also participate in actual beekeeping activities such as honey harvesting, hive expansion, queen rearing and apiary design. After a rewarding trip to the apiary, the tour concludes with refreshing beverages and your own buzzing tale to tell when you return home. After such hard work, it is time for Honey Tasting! Gear down with some tasty unique honeys with tea or coffee and learn more about all benefits honey has to offer as super food.
