About Slettnes Lighthouse

The world's northernmost mainland lighthouse is located near the village of Gamvik in Finnmark, Norway. It was built in the early years of the 20. century, destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt in 1945-48. Situated on a vast coastal plain between the Barents Sea and the Nordkyn mountains, Slettnes is a fascinating place to visit for people who enjoy scenery, wildlife, history and the brute forces of nature. The visitors' services operate from mid June to mid August. At other times of the year, the lighthouse is open to groups who have made an appointment in advance.
