We will lead you through the darkened pioneer village, sharing chilling tales about Upper Canada’s darker history and the ghosts that may still linger in some of the buildings on-site today. This unique opportunity to see Upper Canada Village after the lights go out will only be available on select days this summer. Although most of the experience is outdoors, you will be able to peek inside a few of our favourite haunted buildings along the way. As this tour often sells out, please be sure you have purchased your tickets before heading to the village in Morrisburg, Ontario. Masks are required to enter the historic buildings. Cette visite est également disponible en français.

A Safe & Spooky Experience for All...

Ghosts of Upper Canada Village is partially accessible; however, a few of the haunted heritage buildings we go into don’t have accessible entrances, and we’d hate for anyone to miss out on some of the neat stops along the tour. More accessible options include The Original Haunted Walk of Ottawa and The Original Haunted Walk of Kingston.

More Spooky Fun!

Haunting locals and newcomers alike, this ghost tour takes you for a spooky stroll through Kingston’s old Sydenham Ward. It features haunted hotels, hidden burial grounds, grave robbings, hangings at the old courthouse, and Kingston’s famous haunted courtyard. A tried and true favourite for all ages. Cette visite est également disponible en français.

Explore Ottawa’s famous haunted jail and real-life murder mystery! Tour the cellblocks where inmates of all kinds were once imprisoned. Retrace the final footsteps of the condemned as you walk from Death Row to the last working gallows in Canada. In 1869, was an innocent man executed for the murder of Thomas D’Arcy McGee, a popular Canadian politician? Does he still haunt the hallways of the jail to this day? Join us and find out for yourself. Not recommended for children under 10. Cette visite est également disponible en français.

The City of Ottawa requires that masks be worn to enter the historic jail. Part of the building is in use as an overflow distancing shelter for those experiencing homelessness. The areas we visit are reserved exclusively for tour use.

Special Valentine’s Weekend Investigation! The Historic SDG Jail (aka the Cornwall Jail) in Cornwall, Ontario, is a site we have been asked about for years and we are thrilled to be able to offer three weekends of investigations there this fall with Phantoms of Yore. Constructed in 1833 and active until 2002, the jail served as both a minimum and maximum security facility over that time. Several executions were carried out on-site, in addition to the suicides and murders. Due to the jail’s dark history and frequent ghost stories, it has attracted the interest of ghost hunters from across North America. This 3.5-hour special event will begin with a full briefing on the haunted history of the site, the equipment to be used, and the best practices to follow when collecting and analyzing evidence. Then you will have the opportunity to venture inside the jail – in the dark – to see what you can discover. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to investigate one of the most sought-after haunted sites in Ontario. With such small groups, tickets are extremely limited. Transportation not provided.
