In winter, it would be possible to walk from the tip of Alaska to Russia.
Actually you can. For most of the year it is true you can't walk to Russia from Alaska, but in winter there is a short period that there is a part of the Bering Strait is frozen over and you could walk across. The only problem is as soon as you step foot on Russian or US land you will be arrested.

Canada shares a border with Alaska. In some ways it could be said that Russia also borders Alaska. There are two small islands in the Bering Straight between Alaska and Russia that are only about a mile apart. The name of these islands is Big Diomede and Little Diomede Islands. One of the islands is part of Alaska and belongs to the U.S., the other is part of Siberia and belongs to Russia. At times there is ice connecting the islands and it is possible to walk from one island to the other, thus crossing a border shared and between the U.S. and Russia.
