About

Mr Bee from Brøttum keeps four beehives at Ruten Fjellstue. We hope for plenty of honey from Espedalen’s rich flora.
This year, we also offer bee safari.

BEE SAFARI

The safari lasts for one hour, during which you learn a lot about life in the beehive.
Dressed in beekeeping suit and gloves, you get to visit the bee shed where we open a hive to see how the bees live.

PRICES:

NOK 250 for adults and NOK 100 for children. Payment by Vipps or card accepted.
Included in the price:
- Introduction to the life of bees and how a hive is organised
- Protective equipment
- Ice cream with honey

Max. 5 people per visit.

Suits are available in all sizes, and children can attend if accompanied by an adult (from 4 years old)

Espedalen has a rich flora, and we hope that Mr Bee’s bees produce plenty of honey this summer.

NAMING COMPETITION:

Each hive has a queen bee. They are only known by a number, and we would like to give them proper names. The best suggestion will win a price.

LIABILITY:

Participation is at your own risk. If you have a bee sting allergy, you should not take part. Although you will be well protected, we cannot guarantee that you will not be stung.
