Frederick E. Hyde Fjord is a fjord in Peary Land, far northern Greenland.


To the east Frederick E. Hyde Fjord opens into the Arctic Ocean with its mouth just to the north of Cape John Flagler.[1]

Freja Fjord, Thor Fjord and Odin Fjord are branches on the southern shore of the fjord, about 65, 95 and 120 km from the mouth respectively; Frigg Fjord is an offshoot on the northern shore located 95 km from the mouth.[2]

The 1,220 m high Nordkronen plateau is located on the southern side of Frederick E. Hyde Fjord. The Nordkronen has many glaciers and is intersected by deep ravines with steep sides. 1,737 m high Wistar Bjerg, one of the highest points in Peary Land, rises above the fjord between the Freya and Thor fjords at the edge of the plateau.[3]
