Hornøya is a small, 0.4 square kilometres (99 acres), uninhabited island in Vardø Municipality in Troms og Finnmark county, Norway. It lies in the Barents Sea, just east of the larger island of Vardøya where the town of Vardø is located. Vardø Lighthouse is situated at the highest point of the island, at an elevation of 65 metres (213 ft) above sea level, and it protects the shipping lanes around the town of Vardø. The island is the easternmost point of Norway proper.
