Step into the glorious world of the honey bee!

At Huka Honey Hive, we offer interactive beekeeping tours, where visitors are introduced to all things honey and bees. 

Our guided tour takes you through our beautiful gardens, introduce you to our busy bees and provide the opportunity to get up close and personal with them, and depending on the season even extract your own jar of honey from the hive!

One of the most fun, affordable and educational Taupo activities on offer!

Our Honey Shack beekeeping tour:

Zip up your bee suit, become a beekeeper and experience the wonderful world of bees!

The Honey Shack Tour is a hands-on beekeeping experience where you can get up close and personal with beehives alongside one of our beekeepers.

Imagine being able to handle frames of honey straight from the hive, learn about what goes on in the hive, and take part in the honey extraction process, spin fresh honey from the comb and walk away with your very own jar of honey! Please note: honey extraction is dependent on the time of the season and conditions.

Learn all about bees, their different roles in the hive, the honey they craft and other wonderful products they create.

Discover the importance of bees to our lives, their essential place in our world and how you can encourage these fascinating creatures to thrive in your own backyard.

This 75-minute tour also takes in our beautiful gardens which contain a variety of native trees used by the honey bees to make our delicious honeys in store.

Our Honey Shack Tour runs from mid-October until early April weather permitting and is suitable for adults and children five years and up.

​See the wonder of
honey-making in action​
