Norwegian Lighthouses—Accommodations and Prices

The next generation of lighthouse keepers

The name “Ryvingen” comes from the old Norwegian word “rufa” or “island that looms.” Until 1867, Ryvingen island was owned by the farms at Outer Farestad. The farmers used the island for grazing and as a base for hunting and fishing. This right is still theirs. Today, however, Ryvingen is much more than just The Southernmost Lighthouse in Norway. It is a paradise for children and teenagers alike.
