The Gallegos River ( ) is a river in the Argentinemarker province of Santa Cruzmarker, on whose estuary lies Río Gallegos city, capital of the province.

The river is formed at the confluence of the Rubens and Penitentes rivers, and after traveling it reaches the Atlanticmarker Coast.

On its way east, after crossing a wide glaciated canyon, it meets the tributaries Turbio, Cóndor, and Zurdo. In spite of this, the river's stream can be drastically reduced during the dry season.

The river, named after Blasco Gallegos, one of the pilots of Ferdinand Magellan's expedition of 1520, is popular for fly fishing for brown trout, principally by tourists.
