Experience the original outdoor Haunted Tour of Ottawa. Spend an evening with fascinating tour guides who are chosen from the best of local storytellers and have a passion for sharing the unexpected side of Canada's capital city.
Your expert cloaked guide will reveal to you their favourite ghost stories from the Downtown Ottawa area and lead you by lantern light to some of the city's best-known haunted spots, including: the Fairmont Château Laurier, Grant House and Ottawa’s haunted high school. A favourite stop is the haunted Bytown Museum where many of the guides have had their own experiences to share. You’ll never look at the city and these buildings the same again!
This 90-minute tour departs from a Downtown Ottawa location near Sparks and Elgin Streets. After being led through the streets of Downtown Ottawa, hearing the ghostly encounters, your guide can walk you back to the start location, or leave you to enjoy a (sleepless) night in the city.
