This has to be the most Instagrammable water sport we’ve ever seen

If you’ve been looking to get out on the water and explore a historic town from a different perspective, we’ve found the activity for you.

Explore Enniskillen in Fermanagh by night on a glow in the dark hydrobike. There’s a sentence I never thought I’d type, but there we go.

This tour from Erne Adventures has proved to be hugely popular over the past few months, and the good news is they’ll be continuing it throughout the winter. Here’s a bit more about the bikes – honestly, every bit of info about them just makes us want to do it even more.

  • They’re dog friendly. You can bring your pup along for the ride! Great news for anyone looking to plan a pet-inclusive winter getaway.
  • They’ve got drink holders. So you can bring a warming flask of tea or whatever you’re having yourself along for sustenance.
  • They’re a workout. Or not, if you’re not in the mood. Pedal as fast or as slow as you want – use it as a way of getting your cardio in or just enjoy a leisurely ride. You can even use them for fishing, if that’s what your heart desires.

The Hydrobike By Lights Tour will take you about an hour, and is suitable for kids aged 8 and over. You can find out more and book your place on a tour HERE.
