The Greenland tourist board says No. There are no ferry connections between Greenland and Iceland, Denmark or Canada. However, more and more cruise shipping companies are choosing to include Greenland on their itineraries, whereby it is possible to begin the voyage from Iceland or go onboard at, for example, Kangerlussuaq. Greenland being an island, I ...

Not a map as such, but Wikipedia has a list of ViaRail routes. Then when you click one of the routes, for example - the Ocean route, you can see on the right a list of every single town stopped at along the route. On the Corridor routes it actually has a 'map' (diagram) of the stations along this route including between Toronto and Ottawa. Remember, if ...

If there's a bus terminal where you can buy a ticket, even if it's inside a store or restaurant or gas station, there should be at least a chair or bench to wait inside, I've seen some. This is Canada, no one would expect paying bus passengers to wait outside in the cold for their bus to arrive. And if it's -20C (or -30C, -45C, pick an extreme) it could be ...

It should be no problem. The convenience store will have an arrangement with the bus company to receive their passengers. They know that a good portion of them will buy things, but there is no requirement for you to spend money there. Also keep in mind that at most of these stops, the buses will refuel. This means a portion of your ticket price actually is ...

When you enter Canada legally you would get an entry stamp in your passport and you are planning to skip that part and I can assure you that the USA immigration department will not let you in when you try to re enter knowing that you entered Canada illegally and would be reason enough for them to believe that your intentions are not good. When you say ...

That's the reply I received from the US embassy: Credit cards are usually used to demonstrate the ability to cover travel expenses and the intent to depart to a foreign domicile is usually demonstrated (if even asked) by showing the return flight ticket.

If you want to do it via public transport/ferries, you can bus to Tsawwassen, ferry to Swartz Bay, bus to downtown Victoria (~1hr), walk to the Clipper ferry terminal (10 mins) and take that to downtown Seattle. The clipper is a fast, passenger only, ferry.

According to this web page on the US Customs and Border Patrol web site (last updated March 2014): Can I cross the border via foot, vehicle, or air without visiting an official port of entry? If you are entering the U.S. through the Northern or Southern border, you must enter through an open Port of Entry staffed with CBP Officers. The only ...

If you travel to and from Canada frequently, you may want to obtain a NEXUS card. This costs $50 and is good for five years. In addition to offering identification good for crossing the border, it also expedites clearance. In addition it would allow you to use the dedicated NEXUS lanes at border crossings, which often have shorter waits. One catch is that ...

You can enter Canada with just your US birth certificate, BUT you can not come back to the USA without your passport. So in an emergency you could travel north to be with family, but once there you would have to wait until your new passport is sent and then forwarded to you by someone who has access to your mail. If you live in Washington, Michigan, New ...

If you follow the above plan, then you will not overstay your stay in the USA under the VWP. The USA would consider you "in" the country for only your initial 3 weeks. As long as ...

According to this nifty tool provided by the Canadian authorities, it seems that Pakistani nationals need a visa if visiting or transiting Canada: Country: Pakistan You need a visa to visit or transit Canada. Starting December 11, 2013: citizens of your country will need to provide biometrics (fingerprints and photograph) when applying for a ...

The US border agent won't care, because he can't be 100% sure whether your friend was in Canada illegally (there may be a second passport issued to him by another country or even by the same country), or some kind of visa that is not in any passport, or or or...). What matters to him is that your friend may enter the states legally. So, unless RCMP picks ...

You could stay a lot of nights at one of any number of hotels and/or rent cars similarly. For credit cards, your only option that I can find is the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite which has points that can be redeemed for flights on oneworld airlines. Alternatively you could use an American Express to generate points and then purchase the flight through ...
