Canada’s Wonderland might be a blast, and the Alberta Badlands are rich in history, but if you’re in search of some real adventure, look no further! We’ve got a list of kooky, unexplained mystery spots from across our great country. Program these places into your MyFord Touch navigation system, and let your inner investigator out to play.

Let’s get going.

6. The Treasure Pit of Oak Island, N.S.

First discovered in 1795, the Money Pit of Oak Island was stumbled upon by 16-year-old Daniel McGuinnis. Uncovered on the first excavation was a stone tablet that read, “Forty feet below here 2 million pounds is buried.” Spooky, right?

Since then numerous teams have tried, and failed, to uncover the alleged treasure, encountering strange oak platforms, floods and a seemingly endless pit. Theories as to what’s down there include the treasure of pirates like Captain Kidd and William Treach (a.k.a.  Blackbeard), French naval treasure, Marie Antoinette’s stolen jewels, even a lost Freemason vault.

Others say that’s there nothing down there; it’s just a system of sinkholes and caves. But why not find out for yourself!

5. The Magnetic Hill of Moncton, NB

Is it magic or just an optical illusion? As far back as the 1880’s, people reported their carts rolling up on their horses. To the eye, it’s clearly a hill. Yet for some mysterious reason, objects, cars, even water, seem to roll uphill. Now that’s fuel efficiency.

Magnetic Hill has become a popular natural attraction, seeming to defy the laws of physics.

At just a 15-minute drive from the center of Moncton, it’s worth the trip to experience this in your car first-hand.

4. Sandbanks Provincial Park, ON

You’re probably saying to yourself “I know Sandbanks is a beautiful provincial park near Belleville, Ont. and I know it’s the largest freshwater sandbar and dune in the world. But where’s the mystery?”

OK, good question. But let me ask you this, “Did you know that Sandbanks once ate an entire town?!”

It did.

“OMNOMNOMNOM!” – Sandbanks Provincial Park

Sometime in the mid-1850’s farmers removed the majority of the trees in the area causing the sand to shift. The result: the small rural community was swallowed by the growing sand dunes! It wasn’t until 1921 that the Ontario government was able to get the erosion under control.

Just a short drive from Bellville, Ont., Sandbanks is a beautiful spot to swim, hike and camp. Just keep an eye on your kids. Those hills may be hungry!

3. The Lemon Gold Mine

This is a classic tale of lost riches, greed and murder. Legend has it two prospectors, known only as “Blackjack” and Frank Lemon, stumbled upon the mother lode of gold somewhere in Alberta near Crowsnest Pass.

While they bedded down for the night to decide what to do with their new fortune, Lemon set upon his sleeping partner with an axe. Racked with grief, he was never able to return to that spot, nor lead anyone else back to the site where the gold was discovered.

Should you find yourself in Calgary, or Edmonton, you’re in a great starting point to join the hunt. Who knows, maybe you could be the one to finally strike it rich…

2. Ogopogo of Lake Okanagan, BC

Much like it’s Scottish sister the Loch Ness Monster, the Ogopogo joins the ranks of unconfirmed lake monsters documented by grainy photos and shaky cameras. It earned its name in 1924, previously being referred to as N’ha-a-itk, or lake demon, by the Okanakane.

“Make sure you catch my good side!” – Ogopogo

First sighted in 1872, old Oggie has worked its way into the fabric of Canadian folklore, appearing in television, books and even court cases over the years.

Cryptozoologoists have suggested it may be a form of primitive serpentine whale like a Basilosaurus. Trust us, scientists are always right!

So what is it? A dinosaur or monster? Take a day trip south of Kelowna and see if you can’t settle the dispute yourself! If you do, make sure you come back here and leave us a comment letting us know what you’ve found.

But possibly the biggest mystery of them all…

1. The Caramilk Secret, ???

Possibly the most enduring mystery to ever pass the lips of any Canadian, the Caramilk Secret has eluded Freemason scientists, religious skeptics and Illuminati spies for decades.

Manufactured at a secret underground location (some reports suggest somewhere on the west side of Toronto), the Caramilk bar flies in the face of logic.

The Caramilk Secret
Only three people in the world have ever learned the Caramilk secret.

While the bar appears to be wholly chocolate, one bite reveals a delicious mystery. The centre is inexplicably filled with soft caramel! No one should be able to achieve this act. Yet here it is.

Should you find yourself in Toronto, it might be worth a cautious trip up to Gladstone and Dundas (but you didn’t hear that from us!) to investigate. Perhaps you could be the one to unwrap the secret of this sweet mystery!
