Verdens Ende (World's End, or The End of the Earth[1]) is located at the southernmost tip of the island of Tjøme in Vestfold, Norway.

It is composed of various islets and rocks and is one of the most popular scenic spots in the area, with panoramic views of the Skagerrak and fishing facilities. It also has a replica of a Vippefyr, an early type of beacon or lighthouse, erected in 1932.

An ultramarathon endurance foot race, Soria Moria til Verdens Ende has its finish line at this point, and starts at the Hotel Soria Moria in Oslo, 100 miles (161 km) away.
