The world's northernmost mainland lighthouse is located near the village of Gamvik in Norway. It is situated in the middle of a unique nature reserve, and the area is also rich in cultural heritage. The lighthouse itself is protected by the Cultural Heritage Act. Accomodation is simple but cosy. During summer, one can join a guided tour in the lighthouse tower, or have a coffee and a waffle in the little café.

Went here walking from Gamvik to the lighthouse. It's not the highseason, so everything was closed and there was a lot of snow. Very nice point to look at the sea and take pictures of the northernmost mAinland lighthouse.
