What you'll do

We'll meet at meeting point. If you come from Barcelona and do not have car we'll pick you up at L'Arboç (R4 line) or at Sant Vicenç de Calders (R2, R13, R14, R15, R16 lines) train station. We recommend you this last option to enjoy this beautiful train ride along the Garraf coastline. You can take train at Barcelona Sants, Passeig de Gràcia or Estació de França. After ending experience we'll bring you back so you can enjoy ComaRuga beaches before coming back to Barcelona. After picking you up we'll have a drive to our apiaries so you could enjoy Penedés landscapes with tipycal Masias, vineyards or Barracas. Once arrived, while wearing up our beekeeping dresses we'll explain a brief of bees life, beahvour, habitats and beekeeping works and tasks. Once in front of beehives, we'll open it up and find out what's going on inside. We'll be identifying different breeds which colony consists of. Also an explanation of how this grows, develops and regenerates. After telling apart workers, drones and queen bee we'll head towards our picnic area to enjoy a taste of different kinds of honey. After that a honey-related-brunch will be provided. At last we'll discuss about bees current hazards and state of beekeeping. Please ask to us availability of english tour before booking.

Saray

I am a co-founder of El Bosque Melífero and a professional beekeeper. After taking a break in my professional life as a laboratory technician in biomedical research, I decided to learn as much as possible about beekeeping. During our stay in the north of Extremadura, beekeeping area par excellence, I took the professional certification course in beekeeping while learning with the masters of the trade and also in a self-taught way. Three years after the beginning, we moved our activity to the Penedés region to continue giving the best to our bees. David is the other co-founder and will be the english guide in case english tour is booked.

Where you'll be

Our apiaries are located in the Serralada del Montmell. In an area far away from urban centers our bees enjoy a wild forest environment combined with small vineyards mostly organic farming. We can enjoy the views of the northern slope of the Talaia del Montmell and the Vall de Sant Marc. The tranquility of the surroundings contrasts with the proximity of the beaches of the Costa Daurada and the Penedes.
