Ghoulees in the Coulees

Reservations for 2024 Ghoulees will be available in early October!

Ghoulees weekend for 2024 will be October 24-26.

Halloween just isn’t the same without a visit to Norskedalen!  Encompassing two full weekends of activities, there is literally something for everyone at Ghoulees in the Coulees!

Pumpkin Carving

Start things out by attending our Pumpkin Carving event, which occurs the weekend before Halloween.  Norskedalen will provide the pumpkins and some tools. Your job is to give our Jack-o’-lanterns a personality that’s all their own!  They will then be used to line the trails and help create that magical Halloween atmosphere.  Check the Pumpkin Carving page for details!

Family-Friendly Trick-or-Treat

The Ghoulees in the Coulees Family-Friendly Trick-or-Treat night provides a fun and non-scary environment for young ones.  Families are invited to walk a trail lined by glowing Jack-o-lanterns and enjoy trick-or-treating in a safe and inviting way.  This event always occurs the Thursday before Halloween and runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  

Vintage Ghoulees in the Coulees

Norskedalen’s traditional Ghoulees in the Coulees features haunted hikes from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday evening.  Walking on wooded trails and through a historic homestead area lit only by the moon and glowing Jack-o-lanterns is probably scary enough on its own.  Adding ghosts, ghouls, and other spooky effects will only add to the fun and excitement.  Guides will be ready to help guests navigate the trails and see what or who lies around the next bend!  

Ghosts & Toasts Ghoulees in the Coulees

On Saturday evening, join Norskedalen for a new event called Ghosts and Toasts.  Guests will need to be 21 years of age or older since the evening will feature craft beer and wine tasting.  Come before your hike to enjoy a few samples, stay after your hike to enjoy some more!  Your admission includes 8 samples, one entrée from the concessions in the shelter, a commemorative glass, and an evening at Norskedalen unlike any other.   All guests will need a current ID.  Oh, some unexpected guests may visit you on the trails too………..
