Kvænangen (Northern Sami: Návuotna) is a fjord in the municipalities of Kvænangen and Skjervøy in Troms county, Norway. The 72-kilometre (45 mi) long fjord stretches from the Norwegian Sea to the village of Kvænangsbotn. The Reisafjorden is a large fjord which branches off the Kvænangen fjord to the west. The European route E06 highway crosses the fjord on the Sørstraumen Bridge where the fjord is only about 350 metres (1,150 ft) wide, just west of Sekkemo.
There are a number of islands in the fjord. On the west side of the fjord are the islands of Arnøya, Laukøya, Skjervøya, and Kågen. The smaller islands of Haukøya, Rødøya, Skorpa, Nøklan, and Spildra are located in the middle of the fjord.
