Halti (Finnish: Haltitunturi, Northern Sami: Háldi, Swedish: Haldefjäll) is the highest fell in Finland, at 1,324 m (4,344 ft) above sea level, and thus the highest point in the country. The Halti fell is located in the municipality of Enontekiö in the province of Lapland at the border between Finland and Norway. The summit of Halti at 1,365 m (4,478 ft) is actually in Norway and it is known as Ráisduattarháldi. That peak is located on the border between the municipalities of Nordreisa and Gáivuotna–Kåfjord, about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) north of the border with Finland.[1]

Halti was dimensioned and mapped by the Finnish person Erkki Perä. The highest point in Finland is a spur of Ráisduattarháldi at 1,324 m (4,344 ft) known as Hálditšohkka at the border of Norway. The highest mountain, its peak being in Finland, is Ridnitšohkka, at 1,316 m (4,318 ft).

A 50 km (31 mi) trekking path leads from Saana, Kilpisjärvi to Halti.
