Haunted Kingston and Ottawa Tour
4 Days (From Toronto) – Join us for four spook-tacular days on our new Haunted Kingston and Ottawa Tour, featuring spine-tingling experiences in two historic Canadian cities. Including a tour of the Kingston Penitentiary, The Diefenbunker and a haunted walking tour in Ottawa, this tour is a great way to get into the Halloween spirit!
We board the coach this morning, and enjoy a scenic drive to historic Kingston, Canada’s first capital city. A step on guide joins us this afternoon as we learn about the city’s rich history and many ghost stories, from hidden burial grounds to the 19th century fortress on Fort Henry Hill. Afterwards, enjoy free time in scenic downtown Kingston for dinner on your own.
After breakfast, we tour Canada’s oldest and most notorious maximum security prison, The Kingston Penitentiary, where Canada’s most dangerous criminals were housed before it closed in 2012. After lunch, we board the coach for a short drive to Ottawa. We spend some free time for dinner in Byward Market, browsing unique restaurants and shops in this popular area. We’re then treated to an evening of Canada’s scariest stories on a haunted walking tour, including an after-hours visit in the Bytown Museum, known as Ottawa’s most haunted building. We spend two nights at the perfectly located Lord Elgin Hotel, in downtown Ottawa.
This morning, we enjoy the fall scenery from the comfort of the coach as we drive through the Mackenzie King Estate in Gatineau Park. Our tour director will share some stories as we explore King’s secluded getaway, and learn about his passion for the supernatural. This afternoon we’ll offer sightseeing options, including the Museum of Nature, which has long been rumoured to be haunted. Spend the evening exploring Ottawa at your own pace, before returning to our hotel for the night.
We step back in time to the Cold War era this morning as we visit The Diefenbunker in Carp, a bunker built in secrecy between 1959-1961 to provide a safe location for Canada’s government officials in the event of nuclear war. Now the home of Canada’s Cold War Museum, this four-storey underground facility is one of Ontario’s most popular tourist attractions. Afterwards, we set our sites for home, arriving this evening with plenty of spooky stories to share with our friends and family.
