Overview

Eigeroy Lighthouse, erected in 1853-54, has one of Europe’s strongest lights. The lighthouse was built to ensure the safety of the shipping traffic along the coast. It was the first time a cast-iron tower was built in Norway. The sections were delivered by Baerum steel-works. In addition, 70,000 stones were used to line the tower. There are 134 steps in the tower itself, as well as 34 to reach the entrance. From the car park by Nautasundet, which has toilets and waste collection, there is a good path that runs 2 km up to the lighthouse. There are seven geo stops along the path, which give you an opportunity to learn more about the anorthosite, the special geological deposit in the area around Egersund. The lighthouse is open to visitors on Sundays during summer. The old lighthouse keeper’s dwelling has been renovated and houses a café which is also open during the summer. It is roughly 12 km from the centre of the town to the car park. Follow the RV502 road, turn right past Eigeroy bridge, and it is signposted from Segleim.

I try to visit the lighthouse whenever I visit my hometown Egersund. Great view and fresh ocean air! The walk is done halfway on paved road, and the rest on well prepared trails.

Even with bad weather this was a nice walk with amazing views of the sea. When we did the walk the wind was quite strong and it was raining a bit. Amazing to see the sea crushing the rocks at the beach. So much power!

This is a very scenic place at Eigerøy just outside Egersund. There is about 2.5 km to walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse, but it's a nice trip in a scenic landscape. This is a very popular place and I met a lot...More
