Solis Glacier is a glacier on Greenwich Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica extending 2.8 km in southeast-northwest direction and 1.8 km in southwest-northeast direction and draining the north slopes of Breznik Heights to flow northwestwards into Yankee Harbour.

The feature was named by the 1952-53 Chilean Antarctic Expedition after a member of the party that made a hydrographic survey of Yankee Harbour.


The glacier is centred at 62°31′30″S 59°43′24″W / 62.52500°S 59.72333°W / -62.52500; -59.72333 (Bulgarian mapping in 2005 and 2009).
