Lough Erne Canoe Trail

Fermanagh's lakes provide the ideal destination for canoeing. This 50 kilometre trail spans both Upper and Lower Lough Erne providing excellent opportunities for wild camping along the way.

Important Alteration to Lough Erne Canoe Trail Guide

The following change is relevant to the last paragraph within the ‘Lough MacNean and links to other waterways’ section.

It is no longer possible to extend your journey from Belleek at the north west end of Lower Lough Erne across the border to Assaroe Lake in the Republic of Ireland.

The Cliff Hydro Power Station (GR H934599) presents a serious hazard to canoeists and therefore journeys from Lower Lough Erne should cease before the disused eel fishery (GR H938950). Once, the Hydro Power Station begins to generate (often at short notice) the flow of the river can increase to 200 tonnes per second.

Access to Belleek remains at Belleek Marina (GR H943588) which is a 200m walk to the village centre.
