Take a scenic half-hour drive across toll-free roads and bridges from Ålesund to Godøy Island to view this quaint red-and-white lighthouse. The current 26-meter-tall wooden lighthouse was built in 1876 and automated in 1982. It is one of the most visited in Norway. Climb five stories to the circular balcony for scenic views. There’s also a small historical museum and coffee shop housed in the old lighthouse keeper’s home along with works by Norwegian artists.
