Lindesnes Lighthouse is situated at the southernmost point in Norway, 2,518 kilometres from the North Cape, and is a "must-visit" in all kinds of weather. Norway's oldest lighthouse was first lit in 1655. Lindesnes Lighthouse is still in use, and today houses a museum where you can get a glimpse into the area's long maritime history. There is also a café on site, selling local specialities cooked or baked with sea water, and a gift shop.
