Lighthouses

Spend the night with the sound of the waves
Approximately 60 lighthouses along the Norwegian coast have become very popular for overnight stays. A pro tip is to book well ahead.

In 1655, a single lighthouse was erected at the Lindesnes peninsula, the southernmost tip of the Norwegian mainland. This was the first of more than 200 lighthouses that have guided ships and vessels over the centuries. Many are recently closed or automated, and the last staffed government-run lighthouse was shut down in 2006.

Stay in a lighthouse!

Many of these recently abandoned icons have become extremely popular travel destinations. Which is totally understandable – who doesn’t want to fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing against the coastline? On top of that, the buildings are photo-friendly and excellent for sharing with family and friends – or the whole world.

In total, you can book an overnight stay or two in around 60 Norwegian lighthouses. The price range may vary. The government still owns most of the lighthouses, and they co-operate with local associations and organisations to keep them open for visits, tours, and accommodation. Others are privately owned and commercially operated.

Book your bed well ahead of your planned stay as more and more travellers become aware of this rare accommodation option.
