Gacka honey trail

The honey from Gacka Valley is renowned for being of the highest quality and is available for tasting and purchase in the original beekeeping homes thanks to the year-round efforts of beekeepers.

You can learn about the fascinating world of hardworking bees that produce priceless goods such as honey, pollen, propolis, wax, and royal jelly at a total of 14 honey spots. You will learn about beekeeping from the beekeepers, who are also introducing you to production.

The Gacka honey contains pollen from: maple, buckthorn, wild plum, wild cherry, mahaleb cherry, blackthorn, brown knapweed, linden, common privet, dandelion, shining scabious, meadow sage, umbelliferae, bird's-foot trefoil, ragged-robin, red and white clover, creeping thistle, thyme, amethyst eryngo, and other types of honey plant.

The stationary method of beekeeping predominates in the Gacke region, guaranteeing its nativeness. There are excellent potential for the growth of ecological beekeeping because there is no heavy agricultural production, and Gacki honey specifically meets the criteria for ecological honey due to the local environment.

A recent development in our region's health tourism industry, apitherapy is based on the appropriate application of bee products and their combination at the Marinko Bronzović family farm. The beehive air inhalation house, or apichamber, which is next to the apiary itself, is where apiinhalation is done.

In the apiinhalation house, there are 6 beehives with 6 expert apiinhalators. Their purpose is to inhale air that has been supplemented with microparticles of bee products, such as honey, propolis, fermented pollen, royal jelly, bee venom, and beeswax. Breathing in beehive air aids in the treatment of respiratory illnesses like pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, inflammation of the front airways, and chronic lung diseases like COPD and asthma. It also helps in the treatment of allergies, migraines, and chronic headaches so as in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, stress, depression, and during the healing process following stroke.

Because apiinhalations enhance lung volume and soothe the body, they are particularly recommended for athletes.

We recommend apichamber users to inhale for 30 minutes a day, for 10 days.

In addition to apiinhalations, one area of the house is designed for anti-stress therapy; specifically, there is a bed where the users can completely relax and enjoy the calming hum of bees. Watch them hastily enter and leave the hives, frequently with pollen on their legs, while the aromatic scent of the hive and bees surround them, and all of this without fear because they are separated from the bees by a safety net.
