Førde Fjord ( ) is a fjord in Vestland county, Norway. It is the longest of all the fjords in the traditional district of Sunnfjord. Førdefjorden passes through the municipalities of Sunnfjord, Askvoll, and Kinn. The fjord begins at the town of Førde, at the estuary of the river Jølstra, which comes from the lake Jølstravatn. The island of Svanøya lies just outside the mouth of Førdefjorden. There are roads along the shoreline on both the north and south sides of the fjord, and the European route E39 highway runs past the town of Førde, near Førdefjorden.
Nordic Mining have applied to deposit 6m tonnes of tailings a year for 50 years into the Fjord, prompting much opposition.
The following settlements are located along the Førdefjorden:
Stavang (in Flora municipality), on the north side, at the mouth of the fjord
Kvammen (in Askvoll municipality), on the south side, near the mouth of the fjord
Indrevevring (in Naustdal municipality), on the north side, a little ways into the fjord
