Narwhal

There are few animals as unique and mysterious as narwhals. European explorers once held up their tusks as proof of the existence of unicorns, but the true animal they represent is much more interesting. These magnificent whales have tusks that measure up to 3m in length and it is still not fully known what they are for. 

These whales are less ubiquitous than beluga but are still readily accessible in places such as Lancaster Sound, Pond Inlet, Arctic Bay and Naujaat. Whether you view them from the shores in the summer and fall, or travel to the floe edge in the spring you will be in for a rare treat.
