About Fairy Door Tours
A Fairy Door is a magical gateway or portal between our world and the supernatural.
A hiker made the first Fairy Door discovery in Newfoundland, near the East Coast Trail (Tinker’s Point, Tors Cove). It's believed they have always existed, but are often located in woodland areas where they are less likely to be discovered.
Fairy Door Tours is excited to collaborate with local nature Fairies and offer woodland adventure tours to children and families.
The Pippy Park Fairy Door Tour runs on Saturdays during the summer (see Tickets page for dates and times). This tour visits approximately 10 to 12 Fairy homes and the Fairy Mailbox. Make a wish at the Fairy's well, mail a letter at the Fairy Mailbox, gather wood for a grumpy Gnomes woodshed.
Treasure Bags will be provided... these little bundles may contain shells, marbles, gems/stones, string... things that may come in handy on the tour - or a small gift for a Fairy.

Fairy Door Tour birthday parties are a magical way to celebrate your childs birthday. We offer a private tour to your party group (see group rates below), while you look after refreshments and cake, etc. We do have miniature tea sets available if you'd like to have a Tea Party after your private tour, and several child-size picnic tables on site.Where will we have cake & presents?
• There are several grassy areas and multiple picnic tables for your use - or you can...
• Rent a campsite or tent field site and use a screen tent and/or picnic tables
• Rent North Bank Lodge (minimum of 3 hours)
• The Fluvarium is also a few minutes walk, and have affordable nature-themed parties that would pair nicely with a Fairy Door Tour
If you have a small group you could book a smaller number of tickets (ie. 10 children, 4 adults) and pay regular ticket price, this option will cost less - but please note this won't be a private tour, and others will likely be attending the tour with your group.

Your Feedback...Fairy Door Tours is a magical adventure! Tina arranged a tour for my Kindergarten children in the Spring. The treasure bags, Fairy Mailbox and of course the Wishing Tree were highlights of the tour. I enjoyed it as much as my children and our excitement grew with every clue and enchanted discovery. It’s fun and memorable. A must do!
