Tennholmen Lighthouse (Norwegian: Tennholmen fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in Bodø Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the Vestfjorden on one of the Tennholman islands, just west of the Givær islands, about 32 kilometres (20 mi) due west of the town of Bodø.[1]

The 14.4-metre (47 ft) tall light is mounted on the roof of a 1-1/2 story wood house where the keeper lived. The lighthouse is painted white and the light tower is red. The light sits at an elevation of 27.3 metres (90 ft) above sea level. The white light flashes once every 30 seconds. The 487,600-candela light can be seen for up to 15.5 nautical miles (28.7 km; 17.8 mi). The light is active from dusk to dawn from 4 August until 2 May each year.[1] The light is inactive during the summers due to the midnight sun in the region.[2][3]
