Verila Glacier (Lednik Verila \'led-nik ve-'ri-la\) on Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica is situated southeast of southern Etar Snowfield, southwest of Berkovitsa and Tundzha Glaciers, and west of Kamchiya Glacier. It is bounded by Rotch Dome to the west, Casanovas Peak and Snow Peak to the north, and Ustra Peak to the southeast. The glacier is roughly crescent-shaped, extending 13 km in an east-west direction and 4 km in a north-south direction, and drains southwards into Walker Bay, Bransfield Strait between John Beach and Hannah Point.

The feature is named after Verila Mountain in Western Bulgaria.
