Holger Hott, formerly Holger Hott Johansen, (born 8 April 1974) is a Norwegian orienteering competitor who has won two individual long distance bronze medals in the World Championships in 2004 and 2005. He was part of Norway's relay team that took gold in the World Championships in Japan in 2005. He also won the overall world cup in 2004.

In August 2006 he won his first individual World Championship title, when he took gold in the middle distance at the World Championships in Århus, Denmark.[1]

He competes for Kristiansand Orienteering Club, and was formerly with IF Trauma, IL Express, IL Imås, IFK Lidingö, Bækkelaget Sportsklubb.

He is also a civil engineer (sound/acoustics).

He is married to the Canadian orienteerer Sandy Hott (née Smith). In the spring of 2007 they decided to change their surnames from Hott Johansen merely to Hott, to make it simple and easy to spell. They had thought of this name change for a while,[citation needed] and finally decided to do it before their first son was born in June 2007.
