SHARE SARDINIAN SHEPHERD LIFE WITH TRANSHUMANCE
The seasonal droving of sheep in spring and late summer – the so-called transhumance or “tràmuda” in Sardinian – was a widespread custom in Sardinia. Even today, Sardinia has one of the largest populations of free-range livestock in the Mediterranean. Transhumance is still practiced in certain parts of Sardinia such as Ogliastra, but over short distances.
Participating in transhumance is an opportunity to discover the shepherd’s way of life, their practices and profession (shearing, cheese making, etc.). Donkeys accompany the herds for families with children, making it an ideal activity.
After the walk, the shepherds and their helpers share a well-deserved typical transhumance lunch, made with cheese, meat, bread and good wine.
