Appropriate paddling kit should be brought, everyone should also be self-sufficient for camping i.e.: food, stove and tent etc.

Meet and Trip Plan:

We will meet on Saturday 22nd June at Share Discovery Village on the Lough Erne Trail for a 10.00am start and finish on Sunday 23rd June in the afternoon back at Share Holiday Village. The two day’s paddle will be relaxed and we will spend our night camping around Crom, please bring enough food and water for the camping trip.

All paddles are subject to weather conditions.

Venue Description:

Fermanagh is an ideal destination for the canoeing enthusiast with its magnificent lakes of Upper and Lower Lough Erne providing a 50 kilometre expanse of water linking with the Shannon.
The Lough Erne Canoe Trail was presented the Innovation Award at the 2008 British Urban Regeneration Waterways Renaissance Awards becoming the first Northern Irish project ever to win such an award.   Lower Lough Erne and its rugged shoreline provide a vast expanse of open water where large waves can build during windy periods – an ideal venue for the experienced paddler! In stark contrast the Upper Lough provides good shelter with its maze of bays, narrow channels of slow flowing water and innumerable islands and peninsulas – offering a superb venue for the whole family.
