Lindesnes Lighthouse on a summer day

On the right, at the crest of the hill, stands a much, much older "fire" light that served to guide mariners at Lindenes. Photo © Svein-Magne Tunli.

The headland Neset on which Lindesnes stands is very rocky—typical of Vest-Agder county. Photo © Svein-Magne Tunli.

Lindesnes maintains an interesting museum and offers accommodations for overnight stays. It is really impeccably maintained as is obvious from this picture. Photo © Svein-Magne Tunli.

Just a stunningly placed highlight makes this photo sing. Photo © Svein-Magne Tunli.

Lindesnes stands above the Skagerrak which is — and has been for a long time —an important shipping corridor. Photo © Svein-Magne Tunli.

Lindesnes Lighthouse is 16.1 meters tall, and 50.1 meters above the high tide level. It has a range of 19.1 nautical miles. Photo © Svein-Magne Tunli.

Lindesnes Lighthouse

Lindesnes Lighthouse stands on the peninsula Neset, the southernmost point of mainland Norway. It is the oldest lighthouse station in Norway.

Vest-Adger has a very broken and hilly surface. From the coast there are six valleys that stretch north into the county.

Svein-Magne Tunli sent LighthousesofNorway.com these great photos from a photo safari he made to Lindenes. We love the way he brings our attention not only to the lighthouse but especially to the rocky terrain on which it stands. We’ve not seen that point of view before. Thank you, Svein-Magne Tunli.
