This tour passes the remarkable Devenish Island before heading through quiet countryside to Omagh.

The lovely Gortin Glen section takes you near the Sperrin Mountains before passing through Strabane and cycling the beautiful Foyle Valley and entering the walled city of Derry on a bike path.

This is a scenic route if you want to cycle Enniskillen to Derry in one day and the Foyle Valley offers a pleasant run in to Derry city centre.

You can combine this with the Sligo to Enniskillen route for a great two-day trip.
