Vinjefjorden (English: Vinje Fjord)[1][2][3] is a fjord in Møre og Romsdal and Sør-Trøndelag counties in Norway. It begins at the village of Vinjeøra in Hemne Municipality (in Sør-Trøndelag county) and flows west through the municipalities of Aure, Halsa, Tingvoll, and Kristiansund (in Møre og Romsdal county). At its western end, it flows into the Talsjøen and Freifjorden. The Halsafjorden, Skålvik Fjord, and Valsøyfjorden branch off of the 53-kilometre (33 mi) long Vinje Fjord. The central part of the Vinje Fjord is called the Arasvikfjorden. The European route E39 highway runs along the southern shore of the fjord for most of its length.[4]
