Hjeltefjorden is a fjord in Hordaland county, Norway. The 35-kilometre long fjord runs north-south between many islands leading from the open ocean to the city of Bergen. Its name is derived from Hjaltland, the Old Norse name for Shetland. The main shipping routes from Bergen to Shetland ran through Hjeltefjorden.[1]
