Ryvarden lighthouse


Bicycling from our house can be a nice thing to do if you like to see the old lighthouse and cafe/gallery. On a more windy day you can park in Mølstrevåg and both see and feel how extreme the weather on your way out. It is a nice walk from the parking (approximately 30 minutes) to get there. There is a monument in memory of the 16 people who drowned a dark November night 1999, as the catamaran ferry Sleipner during bad weather ran into an underwater reef and sank. 69 people were saved including the captain. The reef is now safely marked for all maritime vessels.
