is a branch off of the main Storfjorden
in Møre og Romsdal
. The fjord is located in Norddal Municipality
and a small part is also in Stranda Municipality
is 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) long, when you include the Tafjorden
arm that stretches further east, it is 24 kilometres (15 mi) in total. In the Middle Ages, the combined Norddalsfjorden and Tafjorden were probably called «Todarfjorden» (Tafjorden). Norwegian County Road 63
and Norwegian County Road 650
runs along the fjord and includes a ferry crossing between Eidsdal and Linge.
In the 1960s villages Stranda-Liabygda-Eidsdal-Valldal-Norddal-Fjørå-Tafjord were still connected by a web of ferry crossings.
The fjord's mouth sits to the west between the village of Liabygda on the northern shore and mount Skrednakken on the southern shore. Further into the fjord, the villages of Eidsdal and Norddal lie along the southern shore, and their respective rivers . Eidsdal is connected to Linge on the northern shore by a ferry. A few kilometers east of Linge lies the village Sylte at the mouth of river Valldøla which runs through the large Valldalen valley. Further east lies the tiny village of Fjøra, at the mouth of Tafjorden. The village of Tafjord lies at the end of the Tafjorden arm.
