Rivière-Brochu is the ideal spot for this kiteboarder to practise his sport with the most favorable wind and sea conditions. A wet suit is required to stay warm in the frigid water.

As soon as we cross the Saguenay River on the ferry at Tadoussac, we enter a different landscape of mountains, rock beds, rivers, with mostly evergreen forests and sandy beaches stretching for kilometres along Highway 138.

This year our destination was Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan with a stop-over at Rivière-Brochu, just past Port Cartier.
