Kjeungskjær Light marks the middle of the channel at the extremity of the Fosen peninsula in Sør- Trøndelag. This red-coloured, eightsided brick building stands more than 20 metres tall and was lit for the first time in 1880.
The light stands on a tiny shoal that is completely covered at high tide. People lived on this watery refuge for more than a century, but in 1987 the light was automated and the keepers moved to the mainland.
Now the Kjeungskjær Light is open to the public and guests are invited to drop by. Just step ashore and carry your bags into the tower. The first floor contains a boathouse with communal table, and as you go up you come to the kitchen, sitting rooms and sleeping quarters.
The panoramic views from this lighthouse tower include the Fosen peninsula to the north and east, and to the west and south the large islands of Hitra and Frøya.
