Have you ever felt the desire to immerse yourself in nature?
Join us for an adventurous weekend escape through the Upper Lough Erne waterways.
This two day, one night trip is perfect for those who seek a back to basics weekend in a beautiful location.
Upper Lough Erne is characterised by a myriad of islands, peninsulas and bays which lead the paddler deeper into the wilderness around each slow flowing bend.
The tour showcases a tranquil landscape of islands, woodlands and historical ruins such as the 17th Century ruin of Crom Castle and the island folly of Crichton Tower. We will explore a stand of Yew Trees that are reputed to be 800 years old, and marvel at the diverse wildlife of the area, herons, eight species of bats, otters, fallow deer and swans all call this area home.
Our home for the night is a restored farmhouse on a secluded island, which is off grid and offers simple lodgings in an exquisite location where you can enjoy healthy food around a campfire, catch up with friends or watch the sun go down with a glass of wine.
The cottage boasts a fuel burning stove, kitchen and an area for hanging wet gear. There are two composting toilets and a shower on site too. The house has basic sleeping platforms on which to roll out your ground mat, or opt for your own tipi and camp nearby.
This two day trip can be paddled by first time paddlers, no experience is necessary and full instruction will be given before we get on the water. Our pace is leisurely and although paddlers need to be reasonably fit, anyone can partake in this adventure.
Your guide Barry is a qualified Leave No Trace trainer and will explain and encourage you during the trip on various ways in which you can reduce your footprint and have less of an impact on the environment as you travel through it.
