Efjorden (Norwegian) or Áhtávuodna (Lule Sami) is a fjord in the municipality of Ballangen in Nordland county, Norway. It is an arm off of the main Ofotfjorden, stretching about 35 kilometres (22 mi) to the south. The Efjord Bridges on the European route E06 highway cross the fjord heading east on the way to the town of Narvik. The Norwegian National Road 827 follows the western shore of the fjord from the E6 highway heading south to the Efjord Tunnel which leads towards Kjøpsvik.[1]
