According to The Telegraph online, Norway is giving up one of it’s mountains for a gift to Finland in 2017. It has become a bit of a trending topic that a group of Norwegians are launching this campaign to gift the peak of the Halti mountain and let it become part of Finnish territory. Norway also wouldn’t technically be losing much territory, because it wouldn’t change the square kilometer size of either Norway or Finland, but will change what point is the highest for Finland. The retired geodesist, Bjorn Geirr Harsson, has been holding onto this idea since 1972 when he was flying around the bordor to study gravity. The campaign only recently took off because in 2017 Finland will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary of Independence. There will be a few legal obstacles to get through between both countries, but the Norwegians are very confident that Finland will accept their gracious gift, since they have gotten much support and praise for the idea online. I’m not sure anyone could top this anniversary gift of an actual mountain.
