Kalsholmen Lighthouse (Norwegian: Kalsholmen fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in the municipality of Meløy in Nordland county, Norway. It is located on the small island of Kalsholmen, about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) west of Støtt and 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) northwest of Bolga. The lighthouse was first established on the islet of Tennholmen in 1916, but it was destroyed by a hurricane in 1917. In 1919, the lighthouse was then rebuilt on the islet just to the east, Kalsholmen. It was automated in 1993.[2][3][4]
