Nordefjorden (Northern Sami: Nuorttat Dáččavuotna) is a fjord on the west side of the island of Seiland in Hammerfest Municipality, Finnmark county, Norway. The fjord extends about 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) southeastwards to the valley Nordre Bumannsfjorddalen at the bottom of the fjord. Because of the valley, the fjord is occasionally called Nordre Bumannsfjord. About 400 metres (1,300 ft) out into the fjord, the fjord reaches a maximum depth of 84 metres (276 ft). The fjord has no coastal settlements. The Sørefjorden lies a little further south.[1]
