Canoeing on the Lower Bann Navigation
Canoeing on the Lower Bann is an ideal way to get a glimpse of countryside few people ever see in this rural river valley.
Canoeing on the Lower Bann is an ideal way to get a glimpse of countryside few people ever see in this rural river valley. The Canoe Trail developed on the Lower Bann provides excellent information for independent travellers who want to paddle & camp or stay in B&B's along the river. Bring your own canoe or kayak or hire your equipment and a guide from some of the companies in the listing. The locks are staffed to facilitate passage.
The rainfall catchment for the Lower Bann is about 1/5 the area of Northern Ireland so the river levels and the challenge can change quite rapidly during periods of heavy rainfall.
The Canoe Association of Northern Ireland(CANI) organise recreational paddles throughout the year some of which may take place on the Lower Bann. For more information check out http://www.cani.org.uk/?tabindex=123&tabid=3345
