Eigerøy Lighthouse

Eigerøy Lighthouse waas established in 1853-54. The light is one of  Europe’s most powerful lights. The lighthouse was built to ensure safety of the shipping traffic along the coast.

It was the first cast-iron tower to be built in Norway. Therefore, it was unsure whether it was heavy enough to resist the strong wind that occurs in this area, so 70 000 stones were used to line the tower from the inside.

The lighthouse is 32,9 m tall and there are 134 steps to the top of the tower.
