Fermanagh is an ideal destination for canoeing enthusiasts with the magnificent lakes of Upper and Lower Lough Erne, linked by the River Erne, providing a trail of up to 50km.
From the Woodford River on the Upper Erne the Shannon Erne Waterway can be reached and from there it is possible to paddle all the way to Limerick! Lower Lough Erne and its rugged shoreline provide a vast expanse of open water, where large waves can build during windy periods. 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. On shore interpretation has been provided at 10 sites around the trail, a comprehensive trail guide will also be available from March 2005.
