The Austefjorden is a fjord arm off of the Voldsfjorden in Volda Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The 11-kilometre (6.8 mi) long fjord lies in the Sunnmørsalpene mountains about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of the mountain Eidskyrkja in the northeastern part of the municipality. The Austefjorden and the Kilsfjorden join together to form the Voldsfjorden. The village of Fyrde is located at the innermost part of the fjord. There are several small peninsulas and outcroppings that jut out into the fjord, giving the fjord a meandering S-shaped path.[1][2]
