Nordøyan Lighthouse (Norwegian: Nordøyan fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in the municipality of Vikna in Nord-Trøndelag, Norway. It was established in 1890 and automated in 2005. The light is powered on all year except from May 12 until July 25 due to the midnight sun in this region.
Nordøyan lighthouse stands on the islet of Surenøy, north of the Foldafjord. The lighthouse tower is 10 metres (33 ft) tall, and the light at the top of the tower is located 36.5 metres (120 ft) above sea level. The white light is always on, emitting a 79,000 candela light, and every 40 seconds it flashes a much brighter 2,070,000 candela light. The light can be seen for about 17 nautical miles (31 km; 20 mi).
