Herdlefjorden is a fjord in Hordaland county, Norway. The 20-kilometre (12 mi) long fjord runs between the islands of Holsnøy (in Meland municipality) and Askøy (in Askøy municipality). The fjord connects with the Salhusfjorden and the Byfjorden on the southeast end and it flows out into the Hjeltefjorden on the northwest end of the fjord. The fjord is named after the island of Herdla, located at the northern end of the fjord.

The fjord leads directly from the sea to the port of the city of Bergen, however at the northern end of the Herdlefjorden there are several small islands which cause a narrow bottleneck which congests sea traffic.
