Gerila Glacier (Bulgarian: ледник Герила, ‘Lednik Gerila’ \'led-nik ge-'ri-la\) is the 7.5 km long and 2 km wide glacier on the east side of the main crest of north-central Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It is situated north of Burdenis Glacier and south of Fonfon Glacier. The glacier drains the saddle of the twin peak of Long Gables, flows northeastwards and together with Delyo Glacier and Burdenis Glacier joins upper Ellen Glacier north of Bruguière Peak.

The glacier is named after Gerila River in Northeastern Bulgaria.
