Adventure Gently was invited to The Waterways Ireland Belleek Water Festival to let people experience Canadian Canoeing. We had such a good time, meeting so many nice people from Belleek and further afield.
We have had some fantastic trips recently, but we do sometimes paddle in the rain, sheltering under trees or just enjoying the sensation of being out there with nature all around.
Adventure Gently and the students from Drumshanbo Irish Trad Course joined forces and took to the water at Acres Lough in Drumshanbo.
Adventure Gently offers guided tours of the waterways of Northwest Ireland in Canadian Canoes.
As our name suggests we aim to provide a gentle, enjoyable, safe experience but still with a flavour of excitement and achievement. We welcome small groups, individuals and families.
The Canadian Canoe is a safe and stable craft suitable for a wide range of ages and fitness levels. Recently we had three generations of the same family enjoying a day out canoeing on Lough Gill. The canoes are designed to take two people safely. We aim to have all sorts of people enjoy this fun, safe canoeing experience.
With a minimum of tuition, from Graham your guide, Canadian canoeing gives the paddler a fresh perspective on nature, their surroundings and themselves. This is an environmentally friendly activity, where you take nothing but photographs and leave nothing behind but ripples.
The North West of Ireland has an abundance of unspoilt, beautiful natural waterways. We will show and share with you islands and inlets, still waters and the scenic beauty that inspired W. B. Yeat’s writing of 'Lake Isle of Inishfree'.
Whilst paddling the waterways you will have a chance to spot wildlife, make sketches, take photographs, land on an island for a picnic and discover ruins and evidence of past times.
Come with us and relax, discover and explore the waterways of North West Ireland.
We have both lake and river trips, tuition and team building sessions, which range from a 2 hours taster trip to a full days canoeing.
