When on a cruise ship from Alaska to Vancouver/ Seattle (or the other way, you will stop at Skagway – there are a lot of tours you can take any place you stop while cruising but at that place one of the main attractions is taking the train to whitepass at Yukon territory – its costs about 150usd or so. we decided to do this trip on our own and it was amazing – we rented a car at the local Avis (90usd a day) and drove 70 miles to Emerald lake (right next to the railroad anyway) – on the way we saw many bears just walking on the road, we stopped at many view points which were unreal – just rugged as it can be, we had a stop also at carcross desert which is the smallest desert in the world, at Yukon suspension bridge and at emerald lake we turn back and drove the 70 miles back – it was a great 6 hours trip.
The Niagara falls at night are so much different than the way you see them during the daytime, there are many lights pointing to the falls in different colors and everywhere you look you see the falls in colors – it is really a unique view.
The Uruniemi Camping near Inari at the north of Finnish Lapland is located 2 Km outside of the Inari village – which makes it so isolated and really unique. The camping offers all kind of cabins with or without running water so prices vary and can fit many people. It is right on the lake so it is amazing and the views are great . There is, of course, a sauna and also a fire cabin where it is nice to sit around the fire (big enough for 10 people or so).
We called them 2 days before our arrival and even though it was out of season they agreed to open for us and were reasonably priced as well…very nice people.
Directions: When you take the bus to Inari there is a bus stop right in front of it before the bus goes into the village
