Return to Nature and the Life of a Shepherd

Visiting sheep every day, bringing them food and water, herding and milking sheep; watching the production of traditional Pag cheese; assisting in the lambing of ewes; visit to a small cheese factory.

In spite of centuries of struggling against gale-force bora winds, summer heat and numerous conquerors, the island of Pag has managed to preserve its pristine natural environment and its ancestral way of life. If you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and stress and work and bring back a sense of peace and relaxation into your life, come to Pag in autumn or spring to live the life of a shepherd. Cheese from Pag is a delicacy that is known far and wide. The production of sheep milk, cheese and meat was started by the Liburnians more than 11000 years ago, and has been preserved up to today. Sheep live on small pastures enclosed with drywalls and graze on aromatic plants, and are visited by their shepherds every day. Become one of them yourself! Together with a shepherd from Pag, you’ll be bringing the sheep food and water, returning stones that have fallen out of the drywalls, petting lambs and giving them pet names, attempting to milk sheep, participating the production of cheese and enjoying the tastes of Pag. We recommend you turn your mobile phone off!

Packages can be organised for a length for seven or more days. The programme outline for a seven-day package encompasses: Day 1 - Day 7: activities related to care for sheep on the island and town of Pag and surrounding areas. The package can be realised in the period between February and late June (lambing lasts until May, and milking begins in mid-April) for individuals or groups between 2 and 50.
