Hellevik Lighthouse (Norwegian: Hellevik fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in the municipality of Haram in Møre og Romsdal, Norway. It was first established in 1880, and was automated in 1973. The lighthouse was replaced by a smaller automated light in 1988. The 6-metre (20 ft) tall tower has a light on top that emits a white, red or green light, depending on direction, occulting once every 6 seconds. The present lighthouse is located about 400 metres (1,300 ft) west of the original lighthouse building.
