Canoeing on the Erne System
The Erne system is a paddlers' paradise, loads of island stop-offs, heritage and archaeological sites you can only access by boat, as well as towns and villages you can drop into if the fancy takes you.
A Canoe Trail developed for the Upper and Lower Lakes takes into account some of these and provides camping and equipment hire locations all along the way. There is only one lock on the system and it is open most of the time. The system terminates on the downstream side of the bridge in Belleek Village just before eel nets cross the river. Canoeists wishing to travel beyond the nets, onto Lake Asseroe which was created by the damming of the river are advised to portage from Belleek Public Marina to below the marked off area about 1km beyond the village.
The Canoe Association of Northern Ireland(CANI) organise recreational paddles throughout the year some of which may take place on the Erne System. For more information http://www.cani.org.uk/?tabindex=123&tabid=3345
