The Bjargtangar Lighthouse (Icelandic: Bjargtangaviti) is a lighthouse located on the cliffs of Látrabjarg in northwestern Iceland. It marks the westernmost point of Iceland and is the westernmost building of Europe.

The Bjargtangar Light Station was established in 1913. The present tower was built in 1948. It is two stories high, built of concrete, and painted entirely white.[2] The lantern house is on the second floor and faces the sea. Because the lighthouse is on a high cliff, the light’s focal plane is 60 meters above the sea. The site (but not the tower) is open to visitors, although access is difficult.
