Lindesnes lighthouse (Linesnes fyr) is Norway’s oldest lighthouse, located at the southern tip of the Lindesnes peninsula in Lindesnes municipality. This is also considered the southernmost point of mainland Norway.
On February 27, 1656, Norway’s first lighthouse was lit here. This was extinguished in the autumn of the same year, as a result of complaints about low light. But they still count 1656 as the year the lighthouse was founded.
It was no coincidence that Lindesnes became the place where the first lighthouse in Norway was lit. Ever since the Middle Ages, Lindesnes, or Neset, as the place was called, has been one of the most important landmarks for those sailing between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.
This location is a must-do detour if you are riding along the North Sea Road.
