Description

The lighthouse was established in 1867 and was manned until 2002. The Norwegian state owns the southern part of the island (approx. 30 acres). Large sections of Ryvingen now form part of the Skjærgårdsparken nature reserve. There is a pier and a wharf in the harbour.

In summer the Ryvingens Venner association is responsible for accommodation at the lighthouse. Accommodation is available on a first come first served basis. It is possible to pre-book a limited number of places per night. You may call the lighthouse to enquire about availability before setting off.

During the winter months, Rita Dyrstad is the hostess at the lighthouse. Accommodation may be pre-booked during this period.

Details – summer: 30 beds, own kitchen and lounge for guests. Full kitchen equipment is available. Bring bed linen/sleeping bags. There is an indoor toilet and shower facilities. Water from the cistern is drinkable, but we suggest you bring your own drinking water. No organised transportation is available, but you can contact the tourist office for information about boat hire and/or hire of skippered boats.

Details – winter: 25 beds in five rooms. The cottage is heated and bed linen, duvets and pillows are available for hire. The guests have access to toilet and shower in the lighthouse keeper’s quarters. Full kitchen equipment is available.
