From visiting a honey farm to the operation of a honey bee expert, learn which flowers in the region are the most pollinated while finding out about the breeding of swarms, without which the flora would lose so much of its beauty. 

In the heart of the forest, the life of the beehive follows its course, go and see what happens there with the beekeeper, putting on a fully-protective suit. Do you know how to spot the Queen? Listen to the advice and watch for her by observing the dance of the bees close to you, without the slightest risk of stinging!
