Andenes lighthouse


Andenes Lighthouse (Norwegian: Andenes fyr) is a coastal lighthouse located at the northern end of the island of Andøya in the Vesterålen archipelago. It is located in the village of Andenes in the municipality of Andøy in Nordland county, Norway. It was established in 1859 and automated in 1978. The lighthouse was listed as a protected site in 1999.

The lighthouse emits a continuous white light with a more intense flash every 30 seconds. The light sits atop a 40-metre (130 ft) tall red round cast iron tower. The light can be seen for about 18 nautical miles (33 km; 21 mi). The light burns from August 10 until April 26 each year, but there is no light the rest of the year due to the midnight sun at this location. The lighthouse is managed by the nearby Andøy Museum, which offers guided tours during the summer season. As a result, this is the best known and most visited lighthouse of Norway's Arctic region.
