This paper joins the debate on multispecies encounters in tourism by focusing on a hithertooverlooked animal: the mosquito. Drawing from feminist new materialist literature, it workstowards a post-anthropocentric approach to exploring the narratives performed around themosquito–tourist encounter and to casting a transformative narrative–living with mosquitoes–that recognises tourists and mosquitoes as fellow travellers. We use a memory-work method togenerate our empirical materials, complemented by media materials. Our analysis details, viatwo thematised stories, the trans-corporeal nature of the mosquito–tourist encounter and thecomplexity of ethical relations–discussed in terms of violence and care–involved in it. Thestudy enriches understanding of multispecies encounters and multispecies ethics in tourism.
