Eyer Peak (Bulgarian: връх Айер, ‘Vrah Eyer’ \'vr&h a-'yer\) is the peak rising to 3,358 metres (11,017 ft) in Probuda Ridge, north-central Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It is separated from the north-northeastern part of Probuda Ridge by the 2,500 metres (8,200 ft) high Zvegor Saddle, and surmounts Embree Glacier to the northwest and north, and Ellen Glacier to the southeast. First ascent by the Australian-Chilean team of Damien Gildea on 31 December 2006.

The peak is named after the Swiss Bulgarian pedagogue Louis-Emil Eyer (1865-1916), founder of the sports movement in Bulgaria.
