Lighthouses of Norway: Trondheim Area

The Kingdom of Norway (Norge in Norwegian) is one of the world's most maritime nations. The country is long and narrow, with drowned valleys called fjords that bring the sea far inland in most regions. The mainland coast is estimated to be 2650 km (1650 mi) long and when all the islands and minor indentations are counted the total coastline approaches an astonishing 60,000 km (37,500 mi), long enough the go around the world one and a half times. With such a lengthy and rocky shore it's not surprising that Norway has a large number of lighthouses.

Norway is divided into 11 counties (fylker) and the counties are divided into municipalities (kommuner). This page lists lighthouses of the Trondheim region in Trøndelag County in northwestern Norway. It is one of four pages for this large region. There is a page for Hitra and Frøya to the south, the coastal region from Åfjord through Namsos is on the Central Trøndelag page, and the northernmost municipalities of Vikna, Nærøy, and Leka are on the Northern Trøndelag page.

In Norwegian a lighthouse is a fyrtårn (fire tower) or simply a fyr; a fyrlykt is a beacon and a lyktehus is a lantern. Øy is an island, holmen is an islet, skjær is a skerry (a tiny island or rocky reef), sund is a strait (often between an island and the mainland), bukt is a bay, nes is a headland, and havn is a harbor.

Aids to navigation in Norway are maintained by the Kystverket (Coast Directorate), an agency of the Ministry of Transport and Communications.

ARLHS numbers are from the ARLHS World List of Lights. NF numbers are from the Norsk Fyrliste. Admiralty numbers are from volume L of the Admiralty List of Lights & Fog Signals. U.S. NGA List numbers are from Publication 115.

To correct this problem the lighthouse was replaced in 1984 by the Ringflua Light (seen at right) offshore. The old lighthouse was renovated in 2005-06 and was available for overnight accommodations for a time; however, the web page of the former township of Agdenes said for several years that the building was owned by the Klæbu Savings Bank, presumably through foreclosure. It has now been revived and renovated as a space available for meetings and other special events. Located at the west entrance to the Trondheimfjord in Agdenes Kommune. Site open, tower closed.
