how long to cross Canada

I’m planning on crossing Canada from Montreal to the north tip of Alaska before turning south and heading towards south America. Due to my abysmal planning I will now leave for my trip later than planned, arriving in Montreal early to mid July. Does this give me enough time to cross Canada and Alaska and make it out of the north before the worst of the winter sets in?

Also does anybody know what the situation is with the visas . As a British citizen I know I can stay in Canada for up to 3 months without a visa. Does anybody know what happens when I cross into Alaska and then re-enter Canada. Does the visa ‘reset’ giving me the 3 months again or does it continue to run on during my time in Alaska, in effect giving me three months to get to the ‘main’ American border . I suspect It’s the latter but has anybody got experience of this. The Canadian tourist board in London were pretty vague on this. Thanks

Hey there. You will have plenty of time indeed to make your trip. I all depends on what you plan on doing. You can cross the country,tip to tip, in a week if all you are doing is riding an no sightseeing. If you plan on wandering around, count on at least one month for the whole trip.

Visa's ... what it says on your visa for duration of stay is what it means. Bee bopping back and forth across the US/Can border won't get you anymore time. After 9/11 the border crossings between US/Can have become a lot more intense from each countires perspective and you can run into problems depending where you cross.
