Tours of the village of Port Carling

Led by longtime resident Susan Daglish, walking tours of the village of Port Carling are a hands-on way to experience its rich cultural heritage. Tours are about an hour long and start at the museum. Highlights include the locks, the First Nations village, the town’s churches, the famous photo wall, and historically significant locations. Please note we require at least 3 days notice to schedule a walking tour.

There is no minimum group size for a walking tour.


There are 12 large, sturdy picnic tables on the island and washrooms on the island, as well as inside the museum. The large and small Port Carling locks are close by and operate throughout the day. There are a number of scavenger hunt activities designed to allow children to independently tour the museum.
