From NOK 590
Norway's south cape is located at the Lindesnes Lighthouse in spectacular surroundings.
Built in 1655, Lindesnes Lighthouse is Norway's oldest lighthouse. It lies on the southermost tip of the Norwegian mainland ( 2,518 kilometers from the North Cape).
The lighthouse has been designated a national lighthouse museum, and hosts various exhibitions relating to the development and history of lighthouses, maritime culture and so on. From the top of the lighthouse, you have an amazing view over the coastal landscape.
Arriving at the south cape you will be greeted by the lighthouse host. First you will be shown a film about the history of the lighthouse and then you will join your guide for a tour through the museum and up to the top of the lighthouse, for those who wish to climb the stairs! The south cape is unique and beautiful in both sunny and stormy weather. Visitors to the south cape very often get a dramatic feeling of the forces of the weather and its implication on nature. Enjoy the spectacular views over the ocean and the waves smashing agains the rock below. Before getting back on the bus you will be served a home baked "lighthouse muffin" together with a cup of coffee or tea.
Its then time to head back towards Kristiansand. This time partially by coastal road, passing idyllic summerhouses and scenic views so typical for southern Norway. Arriving in Høllen (a small suburb to Kristiansand) we will make a short stop before continuing along the scenic North Sea Route back to Kristiansand.
