It was first lit in 1875, and is the northernmost part of the chain of lighthouses in the string of islands called Froan north of Frøya, starting with Sula lighthouse in south, through Vingleia lighthouse, and Finnvær lighthouse and finally Halten lighthouse. The 29.5-metre (97 ft) tall lighthouse tower is made of rock, which was moved from the Lista lighthouse. It was originally planned to build a twin-tower lighthouse, but the technical development of lighthouses made this unnecessary. It has a luminous intensity of 1,080,000 candela and a visibility of 17.5 nautical miles (32.4 km; 20.1 mi).
A lot of the original interior and exterior are preserved on the lighthouse and the station has been declared a historic preservation site. The station is still in use by the Norwegian Coastal Administration as a base station.
