The village Blonduos lies on the western and eastern banks of River Blanda, and Road #1 runs through across the river. Shops, light industry, meat processing, an abattoir, and a dairy are the main sources of employment in Blonduos as well as a growing tourist sector. Fishing and fish processing are also increasing in spite of the poor harbour conditions and limited facilities. River Blanda is one of the country’s popular salmon rivers. Other salmon rivers are in the vicinity and good trout and char fishing in nearby lakes and streams.
