Why does Nuppu the horse enjoy downtown Turku so much? And why is there a 400-page biography of a Flea?

This popular tour for animal lovers focuses on the animal inhabitants of Turku. In addition to pets, the city is home to delightful characters such as squirrels and birds, as well as cunning foxes.

During the guided walking tour, hear about the regular animal life of the city as well as those less likely to venture into the urban heart of Turku, such as deer swimming in the River Aura. We also hear about how the work of Turku’s Animal Welfare Supervisor has changed over time. Listen to fun stories about working with animals as well as about the guests of the shelter themselves, such as a penguin’s exploration of the city.
