Canoeing for Families on Lough Erne

A definite day out with a difference, get the family together and head down to Share Discovery Village for a free morning out paddling the spectacular Lough Erne Canoe Trail.

On arrival you will be kitted out with everything you need to get on the water including wetsuit, paddle, buoyancy aid and of course the all important canoe! After a quick safety briefing it will be time to hit the water and paddle along part of the Lough Erne Canoe Trail towards Trannish Island Bothy. You’ll learn paddle strokes, play games, get wet and have lots of fun along the way!

On arrival at Trannish Island there will be time to stop for a quick rest and take in the local scenery, and explore the wonderful island before returning back to Share. One thing is for sure – you and your family are guaranteed to have a splashing good time! This event is suitable for families of all ages and abilities.
