Our aim is to protect lighthouses and seamarks

The purpose of the Finnish Lighthouse Society is to protect the lighthouses and their reconstruction and cultural value. The Society protects also the valuable archipelago and inland waterways’ daymarks, cairns and beacons equipped with light. We share knowledge about lighthouses, past time lighthouse traditions and the way of life, and try to raise awareness of the situation on lighthouses and seamarks in danger.
The society is a binding between lighthouse enthusiasts and represents Finland among the international lighthouse societies.
  • The lighthouses are not used in seafaring anymore and the old lighthouses are left to decay.
  • Protection work is a joint cooperation between municipalities, The Finnish National Board of Antiquities, different schools such as vocational schools and polytechnics, local societies and our sponsors.
  • The Finnish Lighthouse Society has its own reconstruction projects in Gustavsvärn starting from 2005 and Märket Lighthouse from 2007.
  • We also participate in local societies’ projects such as the Tasku daymark reconstruction project summer 2016.

 

 

”There are many unique old lighthouses by the Finnish shore. They cannot be preserved without active protection. The Finnish Lighthouse Society works for the preservation of the lighthouses and the lighthouse culture. It gathers the lighthouse enthusiasts together.”     Seppo Laurell The Honorary President of The Finnish Lighthouse Society
