Through the town of Blönduós flows one of Iceland’s greatest glacial rivers, Blanda, and taking the path along its banks, towards the mouth of the river, is a particularly romantic walk, with spectacular views of the open ocean.
There are other things to do around Blönduós besides exploring its natural beauty; e.g. golf, swimming in the town’s swimming pool, angling and shooting, horse riding and visiting the unique Textile Museum.
Accommodation in hotels, guesthouses and summer chalets with hot pots and saunas is on offer for the visitor as well as excellent camping site facilities. There are a variety of eating places, ranging from cafés to grills and restaurants.
In the waters of the river Blanda lies the town’s most treasured asset, Hrútey. Here you will find many good footpaths and a connecting bridge from the mainland to the island.
