Blönduós is a town and municipality in the north of Iceland, in the county of Austur-Húnavatnssýsla, 245 km from Reykjavík.
The town has a population of around 850 and a small 9-hole golf course, and is a good base for touring the Húnaflói area.
Blönduós is situated on Route 1 at the mouth of the glacial river Blanda for which it is named (Blöndu is an oblique case of Blanda). On a hill above the town is a church with striking architecture that is intended to resemble a volcanic crater.
Blönduós does not have a good harbour, but the settlement's main role is as a dairy service center for the surrounding farm areas.
