Fugløykalven Lighthouse (Norwegian: Fugløykalven fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in Karlsøy Municipality in Troms county, Norway. The lighthouse is located on the small island Fugløykalven northwest of the island Nord-Fugløya. This was considered one of the most isolated and difficult assignments of all Norwegian light stations.
Fugløykalven Lighthouse is an octagonal cylindrical stone tower bearing a large lantern and gallery. The original 2nd order Fresnel lens remains in use; it displays 19 colored sectors, the largest number of any Norwegian light. The lighthouse is painted white and the lantern on top is red. The lighthouse shines white, red, or green light depending on direction, occulting twice every 8 seconds.
