A visit to a private apiary is included in the programmes of ecotourism.

If the visit takes place in spring we will see how the bee society is organized and how each team works in a specific field. We will see the queen bee, which is the leader, laying eggs from which comes the population that collects the honey in summer. We will also observe how they pick and store the pollen which is the food of young bees.

If the visit takes place in summer we will experience the collection, the process and storage of honey on the honeycombs.

We will later taste the fresh honey we will take from the beehive.

All this on one condition: we will be wearing the proper suit to avoid bee stings.

In case someone is allergic to bee stings or think he/she is, he/she is not allowed to take part in such a visit even if he/she is wearing the proper suit.

We had a great experience with Ecotourism Karpathos. Evangelia's
knowledge about the history, culture, and environment of northern
Karpathos is incredible, and it made our time on the island truly special.
Her walking tour of Olympos and her guided hikes
were full of insights and details you won't find in any guidebook.
It was a perfect way to see and experience the less-visited areas of this amazing island.

My husband, 11 month old, and I had a phenomenal time with Ecotourism Karpathos.
We were met at our hotel and given a tour of the island as we drove to Olympos.
By traveling in a small group, we were able to get a more intimate view of the village.
We met local women and even came across the priest in Olympos’ main church.
One of our favorite highlights was visiting the small farming village
a few minutes down the road and seeing dry farming in action.
The tour exceeded our expectations!

We spent a most unforgettable weekend at the end of September in Karpathos.
Stayed 3 nights in the traditional village of Olympos,
with our own private view of Aegean sunset,
and a chance to chat with local craftspeople before the arrival of daytime tourists.
Evangelia and her company have provided us with airport transfer to the hotel,
a driven guided tour of the rest of the island, which included a visit to the church
of Panagia Vrisiani in Mesochori,
and hands-on lessons in the making of traditional country
bread baked in a wood fired communal brick oven.
Evangelia had also arranged, per our request,
lessons in a traditional folk dance called Pano Horos,
