Beehive Tours Dunedin, Otago

Are you looking for the ultimate sightseeing tours Dunedin has to offer?  

Are you looking for the ideal Dunedin excursion for your family? Ever driven past beehives in a paddock and wondered what happens inside the beehive? Or maybe while you're enjoying a thick layer of honey on your toast, you've wondered how many bees it took to make it.  Or perhaps you love good food and are keen to know more about bringing it from hive to jar? 

Our beekeeping experiences are perfect for you to learn all about Bees. Come along as a group a family-friendly activity that's perfect for all ages. Our group numbers are capped at 16 to ensure you enjoy fast-paced, all-you-need-to-know-tour about bees and honey in a 1.5 hour window! 

At a minimum, your itinerary will include:

  • You can expect to see under the lids of 3 to 4 hives and observe the Bees at Work.

  • We'll try and find the queen bee,

  • Learn about the cycle of the Honey Bee

  • How honey is traced from the hive to the Jar

  • Check out the processing house, from extraction to packing

  • Have a taste of our sweet golden honey from our samples

  • And the opportunity to buy packed honey from the hives! 

Our tours are by appointment. And you must have your own transport to Mosigel. Tours run from October through to February.  The minimum number is 4, and the maximum is 16

Extra Costs:

You may choose to bring NZ Cash with you - there will be the opportunity to  purchase some local honey! - Suggested amount $60 NZ Cash.

Health & Safety

  • Wearing closed shoes is a must.

  • If you feel anxious around bees, the best advice is to wear an extra layer.

  • You'll be well protected in our bee suits, but long pants and tops will always protect you further, and it's much easier to get into your bee suit in shorts or pants than in a skirt or dress!

  • There's always the chance of getting stung, so if you know you're allergic, please let us know before you head out so we can ensure we've got measures in place to keep you safe.
