Bremstein Lighthouse (Norwegian: Bremstein fyr) is a lighthouse in the municipality of Vega in Nordland county, Norway. The lighthouse is located on the island of Geiterøya, about 22 kilometres (14 mi) west of the main island of Vega. The 27-metre (89 ft) tall red tower has a white stripe around it. The light can be seen for about 18 nautical miles (33 km; 21 mi). There is also a secondary light about halfway up the lighthouse tower. The lighthouse was automated in 1980.[2][3]
