You Can Watch The Alberta Rockies Mysteriously Glow Pink This Spring

If you love taking photos of Canada's most beautiful spots, then you have to head to Banff ASAP to get your own stunning shot of Alpenglow! What's Alpenglow? In the moments after the sun sets in the sky, there's a glow on the mountains that can be different shades of pink, red and even purple! It's not just the glow of a sunset—it's something else entirely and it will leave you mystified.

The Alpenglow Festival at the Banff Gondola celebrates that magical phenomenon and gives you get the best possible views! Be there to capture every moment as the skies and the mountains change colours like magic. These last days of Winter are the best time to see Alpenglow since the white of the snow creates a perfect backdrop to see all the beautiful changing hues.

There's more to see and do at the Alpenglow Festival than the mysterious pink mountains! There's an indoor bar serving a signature Alpenglow cocktail, live music nightly, on-site photographers offering tips and tricks, stargazing with telescopes and s'mores toasting around rooftop firepits.
