Halti is a fell at the border between Norway and Finland. The peak (elevation 1365m) of the fell is in Norway, on the border between the municipalities of Nordreisa and Gáivuotna–Kåfjord, about north of the border with Finland. The highest point of the fell on the Finnish side is at 1324m above sea level, and thus the highest point in the country. The Finnish side of Halti belongs to the municipality of Enontekiö in the province of Lapland.The peak on the Norwegian side is known as Ráisduattarháldi. The highest point in Finland is a spur of Ráisduattarháldi at 1324m known as Hálditšohkka at the border of Norway. The highest mountain whose peak is in Finland is Ridnitšohkka, at 1316m. Halti was measured and mapped by the Finnish person Erkki Perä.A 50km trekking path leads from Saana, Kilpisjärvi to Halti.Proposed border changeIn 2015, a group of Norwegians began a campaign to give the peak of Hálditšohkka to Finland for its centenary in 2017 by moving the border between the two countries by 200m. The idea gained substantial public support in both countries, and in July 2016 it was reported that the Prime Minister of Norway, Erna Solberg was seriously considering ceding the peak. Norway ultimately chose not to move the border, citing the Norwegian constitution's definition of the country as an "indivisible and inalienable" realm.Take a look at our Enontekio online trip itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Halti and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
