Ögmundarhraun is a lava field on the southern side of the Reykjanes Peninsula, which was formed by an enormous lava flow during an eruption in 1151 AD.

When Ögmundarhraun was still a burning liquid, it incinerated farms and houses in the area. It remains possible, however, to see some of the remains from the destruction, particularly near the beach Selatangar, a haunted and long-since abandoned fishing outpost. 

This lava field can be found between the popular Krýsuvík geothermal area and the abandoned farm Ísólfsskáli. Its name originates from the Icelandic male name, Ögmundur.
