We've been working with bees since 1988. As a family business, we practice nomadic beekeeping in Kefalonia. We produce small quantities of almost all beekeeping products: honey, pollen, royal jelly, propolis and wax. Since 1995, we have been using chemical-free methods to deal with the natural enemies and diseases that bees encounter. For instance, to fight against the Varroa Destructor mite, we use a thermal chamber of our own development (patent number:1005196). Since 2002 we've certified our products as organic. In 2015 we started the tour "More than honey - Dias Kefalonian Way".Plan to visit Dias Beekeeping and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Svoronata attractions using our Svoronata tour itinerary planning site.

LOOK INSIDE A GLASS OBSERVATION HIVE
While you gaze at bees inside a glass observation hive, your guide will share interesting facts about the bee's life.
After donning a provided beekeeper suit, you'll step inside an apiary, where Eleni or Thanassis will open active hives. Bring a camera if you'd like a picture with frame in dand.
HAVE A TASTE
Visit the loberatory. Depending on the season and the hives productivity, you might help extract and taste fresh honey, or collect fresh royal jelly or pollen. If the bees come up empty that day, you'll attend a tasting of local honeys instead.
AT THE END
We will treat you a snack "of the beeman" with Herbal Tea, Fresh Juice, Coffee, Local Wine, Walnut Pie, Pasteli, Cheese Pie.
