Kristnitökuhraun is a lava field to the west of Hellisheiði plateau in southwest Iceland.

The lava field formed during an eruption in the year 1000, when Icelanders were debating the christening of the nation at national parliament Alþingi at Þingvellir. The story goes that when the eruption started, believers in the old gods claimed that was a token of the wrath of the gods, to which chieftain Snorri Goði is said to have responded "So what were the gods angry about when the lava flowed that we are now standing on?"
