We spent the day with picnic and playing. The sun was strong and not a cloud in sight. Perfect day with my family. Highly recommended if the weather is nice.

Thank you for a nice review. The tower is currently undergoing extensive renovation, but we will re-open this spring. Welcome back to Lista Lighthouse!

A trip to the lighthouse is recommended. From above you have a great view of the surroundings and the see. It also gives some info on the history. Walk around and watch the animals walking nearby.

Lista Lighthouse is the quiet brother/sister of the Lindesnes Lighthouse. At Lista you can walk around and experience the lighthouse history and the sea without the crowds.

This light house i surrounded by a fantastic nature. The sea is rough and spectacular. Originally 3 lighthouses, you can see the ruins of the other two. At night the light house offers a "carusel" of light. Visit it!
