Nordenskiöld Fjord or Nordenskjöld Fjord is a fjord in Peary Land, northern Greenland.


To the northwest the fjord opens into the Lincoln Sea of the Arctic Ocean.[1] It separates the island of Nares Land, to west of the fjord, from the mainland. John Murray Island and Elison Island are located at its northern end off its mouth.[2]
