Have you got The ‘Gram Fever every time you travel? With its natural 360-degree beauty and awe-inspiring heights and angles, Telluride happens to be one of those photogenic places that was made for Instagram. Here’s how to get the most out of your shots to illustrate your time there.

After you’ve read “How To Take Gorgeous Instagram Photos with Your Phone” and acquainted yourself with some industry secrets, you’ll be all set to take impressive photos while on your Telluride vacation. Here are five picturesque spots in Telluride to choose from.


As Colorado’s top summer destination, Telluride has 20 festivals from May To February. Every season offers spectacular scenery. The secret to shooting quality photos at festivals is being prepared and knowing exactly where to be at the right place and the right time. Move around to find high and low vantage points and take people shots, both of crowds and of interesting individuals. Here are more tips to shooting Instagram-worthy photos while enjoying Telluride’s festivals.  

The Gondola

Telluride’s iconic Gondola is a mini destination unto its own, and it’s no surprise it has its own Instagram page.  With just three miles and 13 minutes between the Town of Telluride and Mountain Village, you’ve got to work fast. It only runs at 11 mph, however, so you will have time to capture the gorgeous San Juan mountains at 10,540 feet. Here are some more high-altitude photography tips

Main Street

According to Thrillist’s article, Telluride makes the list of the Winter’s 10 Most Gorgeous American Towns and Main Street — Colorado Avenue—is probably one of the most photographed of any mountain town in the U.S. Between its Victorian and Greek Revival architecture of the historic district and the dramatic peaks of the box canyon, any way you point your camera, it’s impossible to take a bad photo. Here are some useful pointers on successful street photography.  

The Views From Our Luxury Properties 

Take a quick peek at what our luxury properties look like inside and out, and you’ll start to get the picture that your best photos may come from your own back deck! The ultra-luxe Mountain Village condos and penthouses have mountain views nestled in the pines with glimpses of the western sunset, while our properties in the town of Telluride are the best vantage point for unobstructed views of the entire east end of the canyon, Bear Creek and the lower ski area.

Winter Hiking Trails

Pack your camera along with your snowshoes, hiking boots, Nordic skis, or even on a guided snowmobile trip, because there are plenty of side-country winter trails that will take your breath away. Best of all, they will likely be all to yourself. On these trails, there will be abundant opportunities to capture the prominent San Juans rising from the valley floor, a glimpse of wildlife, or the sublime silence of a frozen waterfall.

Enjoy your Telluride vacation the way it’s meant to be. And when you’re back home, make sure all of your Instagram captions include hashtags with #telluride.
