The village covers the entire island of Husøy which is located in the Øyfjorden off the northwest coast of the large island of Senja. The village/island is located about 53 kilometres (33 mi) southwest of the city of Tromsø. The village of Fjordgård sits about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) across the fjord on the island of Senja.
The 0.12-square-kilometre (30-acre) village has a population (2013) of 274, which gives the village a population density of 2,283 inhabitants per square kilometre (5,910/sq mi).
