Before Santa and sugarplum fairies arrived on the scene, Yuletide was a lot less sweet. With the horned creature Krampus as your guide, take a delightfully wicked, candlelit romp through downtown Salem as you explore ancient winter solstice traditions. While winding through the town’s darkened historic streets, hear tales of macabre pagan traditions and folklore that pre-date modern Christmas cheer. With storytelling fit for a Grinch, you’ll want to leave the kids to home for this one.
  • Discover the darker side of winter holidays on an adults-only storytelling stroll
  • Hear about pagan rituals and folklore designed to scare children and welcome the darkest season of the year
  • Walk through Salem's historic and haunted old town by candlelight
  • Led by a guide dressed as the horned alpine creature Krampus

Highly recommend getting on the naughty list this year!

Krampus gave a fantastic tour! It is apparent that this guide has a passion for history, storytelling, and the art of performance. There is just the right amount of crowd involvement and improvisation balanced with his routine. We were lucky enough to have an intimate tour with just our immediate party due to COVID combined with a blustery evening. It did not stop him from giving us 100%.

I enjoy the guests I meet on this seasonal mythology tour in December. I am looking forward to a few nights in December 2020 when one Krampus I know will come out again to haunt the streets of Salem. Thank you both for bringing your joy to the evening which always makes all of the difference. In gratitude, Kenneth
Best tour ever!

Fun and entertaining evening tour! Krampus was a fabulous host and tour guide with lots of stories and interesting information on Christmas' darker side. As well as a few surprises along the way! Great night and definitely worth it if you're in Salem in December!
