Fimreite is a small village in the municipality of Sogndal in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The village sits on the south side of the mouth of the Sogndalsfjorden, where it empties into the main Sognefjorden. It is located near the end of a peninsula about 22 kilometres (14 mi) southwest of the village of Sogndalsfjøra and about 18 kilometres (11 mi) southwest of the village of Kaupanger. The village of Nornes lies across the Sogndalsfjorden from Fimreite.
One set of the Sognefjord Spans crosses the Sognefjorden just west of Fimreite.
In 1984, a memorial stone was unveiled by King Olav V of Norway to commemorate the 800-year anniversary of the Battle of Fimreite. The obelisk was erected in the nearby village of Nornes. At that time, the historic play Slaget ved Fimreite and the composition Klokkesong (1984) by composer Arne Nordheim were performed .
