Zonda Glacier (Coordinates: ) is a glacier about 8 miles (13 km) long, flowing west-southwest between Fohn Bastion and Zonda Towers into George VI Sound. The glacier was included in surveys by Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), 1948, and British Antarctic Survey (BAS), 1971-72, and was photographed from the air by the U.S. Navy, 1966. The name applied by United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1977 continues the theme of wind names in the area, as "zonda wind" is the Argentine name for the warm dry wind descending the east slopes of the Andes.
