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. « less
