Built in 1655, Lindesnes is Norway's oldest lighthouse. It lies on the southernmost tip of the Norwegian mainland -- 1,564 miles from North Cape. The lighthouse is home to the National Lighthouse Museum and hosts various exhibitions relating to the development and history of lighthouses and Norway's maritime culture. As you arrive at South Cape, the lighthouse host
will greet you. Watch a film about the history of the headlight; then, join your guide for a tour through the museum. Climb to the top of the lighthouse for a fantastic view over the coastal landscape. South Cape is a unique and beautiful landscape in both sunny and stormy weather. It has a dramatic feeling because the forces of the weather and nature converge here to make for a stunning setting and ever-changing light. Watch the waves smashing against the rocks below before you head back inside for a home-baked lighthouse muffin and a cup of coffee or tea.
Finally, head back towards Kristiansand. This time, the drive is partially by way of the coastal road flanked by idyllic summerhouses and scenic views typical of southern Norway. You'll stop briefly in Høllen (a suburb of Kristiansand) before continuing along the scenic North Sea route back to Kristiansand and the ship.
It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion; outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. Wear sturdy, non-skid walking shoes.
