Southern Norway Agder LINDESNES

Ryvingen Lighthouse

Ryvingen lighthouse is Norway's southernmost lighthouse!

Ryvingen lighthouse is located on an island 7 km southeast of Mandal. In addition to being the visible landmark for ship traffic that passes the southern tip of Norway, Ryvingen lighthouse together with Hatholmen lighthouse and lantern "Bestemor" on Sjøsanden, is the entry lighthouse to the ports of Mandal.

The first lighthouse was lit on October 20, 1867. In 1897, today's cast-iron lighthouse was completed. The lighthouse lens was the second strongest in the world, at that time, and it is the same lens that is in use today. At most, there were around 30 people living at the station, and it was a school for children who grew up here.

In 1957, Ryvingen lighthouse became a shift station and the families of the lighthouse keepers lived on mainland. Until the lighthouse was automated in 2002, the lighthouse keepers lived on land and commuted to the work on the island.

From 1.11.17, Ryvingen's friends have taken over responsibility for the lighthouse area and buildings. The Norwegian Coastal Administration still operates lighthouses and engine houses. It is possible to rent accommodation at the lighthouse most of the year. There are 25 beds in 5 rooms in the main building and building nextdoor, Slettingen. Sjøbua can be rented to the public. It has place for approx. 35 people.

NB! The 2020 season will be a little different due to the Corona virus. You will find more information and contact info on your website.

Information about the lighthouse, rental, accommodation and transport can be found at ryvingenfyr.no and at facebook.com/ryvingenfyr/
