Sailing between the fjord systems along the open coastline is the best way to catch a glimpse of its most famous tusked residents. Walruses can be seen along the north eastern coast of Greenland, but they rarely venture into the fjords that are frequented by ships in the summer months. If you’re planning to sail the seas of western Greenland, hauled-out walruses can be seen resting on ice floes in Baffin Bay and the Davis Strait. Narwhals – the unicorns of the sea – are one of just three whale species that live in Greenland’s waters year-round, along with the beluga and bowhead whale. The fjords and inlets of western Greenland are the best place to spot narwhals and their magnificent tusks - which are actually elongated canine teeth that can grow up to 10 ft in length - although they can also be found in the northeast during the summer months.
