Fljótsdæla saga (About this sound listen ) is one of the Icelandic sagas. It is probably the last one written, perhaps from about 1500, probably by an author in the East Fjords, and is a sequel to Hrafnkels saga.

The story revolves around the lives and times of the residents of the Fljótsdalur region in Iceland, including Helgi Ásbjarnarson and Helgi and Grímr, sons of Droplaug, a pair of brothers who have their own saga, Droplaugarsona saga.
