  • 1 Hour or 1 Hour & 30 Minutes
  • All year round

Ghosts, graveyards, hangings and haunts, Haunted Walks take you on spine-tingling ghost stories around Toronto, Ottawa and Kingston. Prepare to be chilled to the bone with stories of haunted theatres, wrongful hangings, trickster ghosts, duels to the death, hidden burial grounds and distressed spirits. Generally taking between one and two hours, each location offers a choice of tours, each with a different theme, and each pertinent to the city. In Ottawa, choose from the Original Haunted Walk, The Great Ghost Adventure, Crime and Punishment Jail Tour or Ghosts and Gallows. The historic city of Kingston has a fabled past which can be discovered on the Original Haunted Walk. Alternatively, you can hear the eerie tales of Fort Henry on Ghosts of the Fort. Toronto’s Ghosts and Spirits of the Distillery tour takes place on its cobblestone streets, whilst the Original Haunted Walk showcases theatrical hauntings and unsolved mysteries.
