Kvænangsfjellet (Kven: Naavuononvaara) is a mountainous area in the municipalities of Kvænangen and Nordreisa in Troms county, Norway. European route E6 traverses the mountain through a route from Oks Fjord in the south to Kvænang Fjord in the north. In the winter, route E6 is closed for 10 to 15 days due to snow storms. A short stretch of the route is exposed to the weather, a gap near the route's highest point, at 402 meters (1,319 ft). During the Second World War, the German occupation authorities built a wooden superstructure approximately 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) long using labor from the Veidal Prison Camp to protect the route. The structure was destroyed in scorched earth tactics when the Germans withdrew to the south in 1944.
The Gildetun Inn (Norwegian: Gjestehuset Gildetun) is located on Kvænangsfjellet and offers accommodation and meals during tourist season. It is located at a vantage place where tourists are able to photograph the mountain and fjord landscape. It also has a taxidermy display of local birds and other animals.
Kvænangsfjellet is used in the summer by Sami reindeer herders.
