Glacier Col is a now formerly glaciated mountain pass on South Georgia in the South Atlantic Ocean. It lies between the northern end of Lyell Lake and Middle Hamberg Lake.

For scientists stationed at King Edward Point, the saddle was a favorite ski area and the designation was long established. Despite the near disappearance of glacial ice by 2006, the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee recognised the designation in 2007.
