Kjølnes Lighthouse (Norwegian: Kjølnes fyr) is a coastal lighthouse located in Berlevåg Municipality in Finnmark county, Norway. It is located on the Varanger Peninsula along the Barents Sea, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east of the village of Berlevåg.
The lighthouse was established in 1916, destroyed during World War II, rebuilt in 1949, and automated in 1994. It was listed as a protected site in 1998. The lighthouse has been used as a guest house/rental cottage since 1994 when it was automated and the keeper's house was no longer occupied.
The white, square, concrete tower is 22 metres (72 ft) tall and it has a cylindrical red lantern on top that emits three white flashes every 40 seconds. The light has an intensity of 290,000 candelas and it can be seen for up to 15 nautical miles (28 km; 17 mi). The light is on from 12 August until 24 April each year. The light is off during the summer due to the midnight sun.
