Learn about the smugglers of Strangford Lough – Daft Eddie and the Merry Hearts of Down. Hear how the monks worked the land in a bygone era and how the Viking raids changed the landscape and place names in the area.

The tour offers potential stops along the way to include unique providers in the area.

  • Age 16+ years
  • Programmed on set dates (below) or for groups of 5+ on request.

The E bikes are electric assisted and whilst manageable by all abilities and ages, participants must have the ability to ride a bicycle. There are a range of sizes and styles to choose from, Strangford Lough Activity Centre will help to get you something to suit.

Please ensure that you check with all members of your party regarding food allergies, intolerances, and dietary requirements prior to booking tickets. It is the responsibility of the ticketholder to inform a member of staff at the host venue about food allergies, intolerances and specific dietary requirements.

This must be done 72 hours before the experience by contacting Rory: strangfordloughactivitycentre@hotmail.co.uk.
