The Ryge Rocks are a small group of reef rocks in the Palmer Archipelago off the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula . They are east of the Oluf Rocks on Gilbert Strait .

Aerial photographs of the Falkland Islands and Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition from 1955 to 1957 were used to map them. The UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee named it in 1960 after Jan C. Ryge, captain of the Danish cargo ship Oluf Sven , who was in service for this expedition from 1955 to 1956.
