Fjell is a municipality in the county of Hordaland, Norway. The parish of Fjæld was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). It consists of several islands west of Bergen, the major ones being Litlesotra, Store Sotra (the northern part), Bildøy, Bjorøy, Misje and Turøy.

Due to the opening the Sotra Bridge to the mainland in 1971 and its proximity to Bergen, the population has grown from less than 7,000 to over 20,000, and it has as of 2008 one of the highest growth rates in Norway. The result is major traffic jams over the bridge every day. A highway that leads to Bergen has reduced the traveling time to only fifteen minutes from the community centre at Straume on Litle-Sotra.
