This lighthouse is super cute and offers great views of the surrounding area. It's a very easy walk to get there and definitely worth it.

We went up to the lighthouse to hopefully see the Northern lights from here. It is an easy trek up stairs and a small trail. The views were so beautiful. Unfortunately, we did not see the Northern lights.
