Midhordland or Midthordland is a traditional district in the Vestlandet region of Norway. It consists of the central-west portion of Hordaland county, mostly including the islands and coastal fjord areas surrounding the Bergen Peninsula. It includes the city on Bergen and the surrounding municipalities of Askøy, Austevoll, Fjell, Fusa, Os, Samnanger, Sund, and Øygarden. The region is dominated by its largest city, Bergen, which is also the second largest city in the country.
There is no administrative functions for this district, it is simply a cultural and historical area. Until 2014, the Church of Norway had a deanery for Midhordland, but that has since been dissolved and its churches transferred to other neighboring deaneries.
