Kvifjorden is a lake in Norway that straddles the borders of the municipalities of Sirdal and Kvinesdal in Vest-Agder county and Bygland in Aust-Agder county. The lake was created when a dam was built along the Kvina river.[1]

The lake is located about 27 kilometres (17 mi) northeast of the village of Tonstad and about 47 kilometres (29 mi) northwest of the village of Byglandsfjord.
