Gjermund Eggen (born 5 June 1941 in Engerdal) was a Norwegian cross country skier who won three golds at the 1966 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships (15 km, 50 km, and 4 x 10 km relay) in Oslo. The championships were held in Oslo in conjunction with the Holmenkollen ski festival, so Eggen's World Championship victories also counted as Holmenkollen victories as well.

Eggen was awarded the Holmenkollen medal in 1968 (Shared with King Olav V Assar Rönnlund, and Bjørn Wirkola.).
