Lars Erik Eriksen (born 29 December 1954) is a retired Norwegian cross-country skier who competed in multiple events at the 1980 and 1984 Olympics and 1978 and 1982 World Championships. He had his best achievements in the 4×10 km relay, winning a bronze in 1978, a silver in 1980 and a gold in 1982, and finishing in fourth place at the 1984 Games. Individually, he performed better in longer distances, winning two medals in the 30 and 50 km at the 1982 world championships and finishing fourth in the 50 km at the 1980 Olympics, though he also won the 1984 World Cup in the 15 km event. Eriksen retired in 1988, and later worked as a skiing coach, with Bjørn Dæhlie among others.

Eriksen was awarded the Holmenkollen medal in 1984 (shared with Jacob Vaage and Armin Kogler).
