Blanda is the longest and perhaps the most powerful Salmon river in Iceland. The source of the river Blanda is in the southwest side of the glacier Höfsjökull and it runs into Húnaflói bay at Blönduós. The catchment area of Blanda is estimated to be 2370 sq.km. and is among the longest rivers in the country with a length of aprox. 125 km. Its source is calculated to lie at a height of 800 m. The river is one of the main salmon rivers in Iceland and has often yielded a catch of almost 3000 salmon in one summer.
In the river Blanda, which runs through the town, there is an Island known as Hrútey. This island is protected and has good walking paths.
