Mathias Fredriksson (born 11 February 1973 in Uddevalla, Västra Götaland County) is a Swedish former cross-country skier who has competed since 1993. He earned a bronze medal in the 4 × 10 km relay at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. Fredriksson's best Olympic finish was at these same Olympics with a tenth in the 50 km event.

Fredriksson has won four medals at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships; two silvers (15 km and 4 × 10 km: both 2001) and two bronzes (4 × 10 km relay: 2003, 2007). He has 34 victories on the national, FIS, and World Cup levels at various distances since 1993. He won the World Cup in the 2002–03 season.

Fredriksson has a brother, Thobias Fredriksson, at the same professional level. He is married to Emma Helena Nilsson.

In October 2008 he was sentenced to sixteen days in prison for breaking the speed limit at Dovrefjell in June the same year. Fredriksson retired at the end of the 2012 season. His last competition was the Åre Cross Country Open on 14 April 2012.

In November 2013 he joined Sveriges Television as an expert commentator and studio analyst, covering the FIS Cross-Country World Cup and World Championships.
