About the Blackwater River

About the Blackwater River

The Blackwater River flows gently for 20km through peaceful countryside through county Armagh and Tyrone before it reaches the more challenging waters of Lough Neagh. The calm waters of this flat water river can be navigated easily in two days by kayak but are also ideal for shorter day trips. Why not stop of for a picnic at one of the many tranquil spots
