12 places to paddleboard in Quebec

Loved for the technical challenge and for the breathtaking views it offers, paddleboarding is undoubtedly a water sport that has been growing in popularity in recent years.

What could be more soothing than traveling the waterways of Quebec, your paddle in hand, letting yourself be lulled by the current and dazzled by the immensity of the landscapes that surround you?

We offer you 12 dreamy places where you will absolutely want to sail with your paddleborad this summer!

Paddleboard, paddle board, SUP?

Whether we talk about paddleboard, paddleboard or SUP for stand-up paddleboard, it is a board that allows you to navigate on the water. Of course, there are different types of boards for different uses and bodies of water.

So, you will find many options that differ in shape, thickness and volume, offered in rigid or inflatable format. So, you have wider boards which give you better stability under your feet to practice yoga or to cover long distances, or, on the contrary, more slender boards to go faster, but less stable.

Without a doubt, there are a ton of choices for having fun on the waters of Quebec this summer, whether with your own board or with one rented through the various rental points offered.
