Soak up the scenery as you walk along the coastline towards Ryvarden’s first lighthouse.

Enjoy a leisurely coach ride to Mølstrevåg, for the start of your guided walk. As you make your way towards the headland, surrounded by weathered heather and rugged rocks, you may be fortunate enough to spot seals or eagles.

Norway’s coastline, which is over 16,000 miles long, has boasted 212 lighthouses over the years. Today, only around 107 remain, and the majority are now automatic. The first lighthouse at Ryvarden was built in 1849, and accommodated 3 families who manned and maintained the building. In 1984 it was automated and is now a cultural museum with a small gallery, conference facilities, and café.

When you arrive at the lighthouse, you’ll enjoy a coffee or tea, and waffles, and have some free time to visit the gallery, or simply absorb the wonderful views.
