Canadian Canoeing
Lough Arrow, Balinafad, Co Sligo
Lough Arrow is our favourite location to begin a Wilderness expedition.  Exploring the lake silently by Canadian Canoe we get to witness the natural habitat undisturbed.  This is a lake of outstanding natural beauty and protected as a Special Area of Conservation by National Parks and Wildlife Services.  We stop on one of the islands for a picnic.  Paddle around and jump into the lake.  A great opportunity to escape from the stresses of life and relax in the natural surroundings maybe even bathe in the pure crystal clear waters before returning  Canadian Canoeing can be as energetic as you would like it to be.  Canadian Canoes travel easier and faster and they are less strenuous and suit the more relaxed adventurer.
