Looking for something different in your Norwegian experience? Make a trip to the Skongenes lighthouse! You can sleep in the keeper's quarters, enjoy the incredible surroundings, and discover many exciting spots. The lighthouse is not reachable by road, and is an hour walk from Halsør in easy hiking terrain. Are you adventurous enough?
The Skongenes lighthouse keeper's quarters has a capacity of 11 people. The cabin is thus perfect for multiple families, or a large group of friends who want to try something different! You are expected to bring your own sleepingbags / bedlinen / towels. Also, you should pack warm and rain-proof clothing, as the sea can change the weather quite easily. Mind you; you are up for an adventure in Norway!
When it's dry, you can climb the rocks. But when it is raining, the rocks can be slippery and thus very dangerous! When the water is low, you can discover the reef just below the lighthouse. You can then also take walks over the beach near the lighthouse! Another beautiful hiking path is in the direction of Vedvik. You will find beautiful beaches, rocks, and amazing vegetation. When the weather is good, you can see the fishing boats on the sea.
Children are allowed, but it should be treated with a certain common sense!
