Discover the Magic of Fairy Doors!

A Fairy Door is a magical gateway or portal between our world and the magical world of make-believe. Fairy doors were first discovered in Ann Arbor, Michigan in the early 90’s. It's believed they have always existed, but are often located in woodland areas where they are less likely to be discovered.

A hiker made the first Fairy Door discovery in Newfoundland. It was found near the East Coast Trail (Tinker’s Point, Tors Cove). This led to a fascination and search for others... to date several have been located and now Fairy Door Tours is excited to collaborate with the Fairies and offer tours to children and families.

Children and adults alike will enjoy this enchanted woodland walk. Visit a series of whimsical fairy, elf and gnome doors scattered along a picturesque nature trail. There will be opportunities for wishmaking, leave a letter in the fairy mailbox and more. Weather permitting a fairy storytime will conclude this enchanted adventure.

  • Grandfather Gnome lives here - he is the keeper of the keys to all the fairy doors!

  • Knock, knock. Is there anyone at home?

  • Mystic and mauve is this enchanted gnome door.

  • It's off to the Fairy mailbox to post our letters to the Fairies!

  • Great day on clothes... even Fairies like the feel of crisp, clean line dryed linens.

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.

Where will we have cake & presents?
  • There are plenty of grassy areas and 2 picnic shelters
  • 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 walking distance, 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.
