Lindesnes lighthouse

Last week we had a trip to the little town of Lyngdal, on the south coast of Norway. Staying only about half an hour drive away from Lindesnes lighthouse, we had to go and see it. It is located on the southernmost tip of mainland Norway. First lit in 1655 according to Wikipedia, and still in use.

Saltstraumen bridge

A 50-minutes bus ride from Bodø will take you to Saltstraumen, the strongest tidal current in the world. Here is the bridge across it (click the pictures to enlarge).
