Rotvær Lighthouse (Norwegian: Rotvær fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in Lødingen Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The lighthouse sits at the east end of the island of Fugløya, part of dangerous reef at the entrance to the Ofotfjorden, about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) south of the village of Lødingen.
The 12-metre (39 ft) tall lighthouse was first lit in 1914. In 1985, the old lighthouse was closed and a new automated, electric fiberglass light was installed near the old tower. The light sits at an elevation of 21.5 metres (71 ft) above sea level. The 25,400-candela light is white, red, or green light depending on the viewing direction and it is occulting once every 6 seconds. The light can be seen for up to 12.8 nautical miles (23.7 km; 14.7 mi).
