Kråkenes Fyr

Kråkenes Lighthouse (NorwegianKråkenes fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in Vågsøy Municipality in Sogn og FjordaneNorway. It is located on a rocky, knife-like promontory jutting out of the northwestern tip of the island of Vågsøy. It was first lit in 1906 and automated in 1986.[1] The original lighthouse was destroyed by fire following an Allied air raid in 1945. The current lighthouse now houses a restaurant and has rooms available for overnight accommodations.
The 10-metre (33 ft) tall lighthouse is attached to the seaward side of a 2-1/2 story wood keeper's house built into the rocky shoreline. The building is white and the lighthouse portion has a red roof. The light sits at an elevation of 42.5 metres (139 ft) above sea level and it emits a white, red or green light, depending on direction, occulting once every 6 seconds. The light can be seen for up to 12.8 nautical miles (23.7 km; 14.7 mi).[2][3]
