Niklas Jonsson (born 31 May 1969, in Piteå) is a Swedish cross country skier who competed from 1990 to 2002. He won the silver medal in the 50 km at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano. At that event, Jonsson started 30 seconds ahead of the gold medal favourite Bjørn Dæhlie. Soon Dæhlie caught up Jonsson, and they were skiing together for most of the distance. Shortly before the finish line, Jonsson escaped, but Dæhlie still finished 21 seconds after Jonsson, which was good enough for the gold medal. Jonsson remained second.
