Shadows & Stone Evening Experience



Shadows & Stone: Evening Experience

Explore historic Sainte-Marie… at night

What does a 17th century Jesuit mission look like at night? Find out! Join a small group of intrepid visitors on a guided evening tour of Sainte-Marie among the Hurons. Grab your lantern and discover the shadows of the past during this immersive and intimate experience. Then cozy up in the longhouse over historic teas and listen to Indigenous stories

History by candlelight

Watch the sparks fly in the blacksmith shop. Roast bannock on a stick. Explore darkened historical buildings. Hear the creatures of the Wye River stir to life. Sip tea by the crackling fire in the longhouse, listen to stories, and imagine what Wendake would have been like in the 1600s at night.

Get ready to experience Sainte-Marie in a whole new way. This small-group tour experience is 1.5-2 hours and will proceed even if it rains, so please dress appropriately.
