This is a list of the most important fjords of the Russian Federation.

Fjords

In spite of the vastness of the Arctic coastlines of the federation there are relatively few fjords in Russia. Fjords are circumscribed to certain areas only; over thirty are in Novaya Zemlya —including lakes which are structurally fjords, with a few others in the Barents Sea coast of the Kola Peninsula, the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago, the Bering Sea coast of the Chukchi Peninsula[1] and the southeastern shores of Kamchatka.[2]
