Edmonton Ghost Tours

EDMONTON GHOST TOURS is dedicated to bringing Edmonton’s past back to life in a thrilling and often exhilarating new way. Too often, history, especially Canadian history, is presented as being dry and boring. Not for us! We believe that exploring our city’s past is a fun and exciting way to spend an evening either on your own or with family and friends.

All tours are outside and walking, so please dress for the weather. All tours go ahead rain or shine. Please arrive early to give yourself enough time for parking and to walk to the meeting spot.

A ghostly walk through Old Strathcona, where we stop in front of certain building, houses, and shops that have reported ghosts, hauntings, murders, and mysteries. They are all true stories that come from area residents and business owners. The tours are hosted by a veteran storyteller with 12 years of experience. Held all summer long, the tours are a great outing for the whole family. The Old Strathcona Ghost Tour is 1 hour long.
