Inger Aufles (née Døving on 29 May 1941) is a retired Norwegian cross-country skier who competed during the 1960s and 1970s. She won three Winter Olympic medals with a gold (3×5 km: 1968) and two bronzes (10 km: 1968, 3×5 km: 1972). Aufles also earned a silver in the 3×5 km at the 1966 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oslo. She won the national championships in 1968 and 1969, in the 10 km and 5 km respectively.[1]

She was born in Valldal, and in 1961 moved to Mosjøen, where she married, changed her last name from Døving to Aufles, and started training in a cross-country skiing club. She became a member of the national team in 1966 and retired after the 1972 season.[1]
