You can now take a haunted ghost walk through the streets of Old Montreal

Mar 1 2021, 7:51 pm

Montreal is currently in Red Zone, Level 4–Maximum Alert — the government’s strictest tier — in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. Between 8 pm and 5 am, Quebecers must not leave their homes except in cases that justify travel. Travelling between regions is “not recommended” per the government, and all COVID-19 protocols (indoor mask-wearing, two-metre physical distancing, and frequent sanitization) must be followed.

With its paved streets and centuries-old buildings, it’s not hard to believe that Old Montreal is a haunted neighbourhood.

Well, you can find that out for yourself at one of Montreal’s Ghost Walks, which have resumed right on time for spring break.

In tours of up to eight people, you can learn about some of the city’s most harrowing tales. You’ll be guided by professional actors and street theatre performers who will take you through a 90-minute deep exploration of the oldest area of Montreal.

To comply with curfew regulations, booked tours have to end at 7 pm. Only private groups can make reservations for now, but the public Ghost Walk tours are set to restart on May 1.

After months of staying in and watching horror movies at home, it’s finally possible to get spooked outside, in the Old Port’s creepy alleys and cobblestoned roads.

If this one tour just isn’t enough to make you fear the ghostly activity in the city, you can check out another haunted tour of downtown Montreal and a paranormal investigation of Old Sainte Antoine Cemetery.
