Hjeltefjorden is a fjord in Hordaland in Norway. Its name is derived from Hjaltland, the Old Norse name for Shetland - the routes to Shetland ran through Hjeltefjorden. It is a major route into Bergen, and runs from Fedje in the north to Byfjorden in the south. It is delimited to the west by the Øygarden and Sotra fjords and to the east by fjords including those of Radøy, Holsnøy, Herdla and Askøy. It was the site of the closing stages of the Battle of Alvøen.
