Of course Whistler gets all the attention when locals and tourists begin their journey past Horseshoe Bay and up the Sea to Sky Highway, but just a simple 20 minute drive North is the beautiful Village of Pemberton. Located in the heart of the coastal mountains, with pristine lakes and sprawling meadows, the district of Pemberton is truly in a class of its own.
Everyone knows that when you go and visit a place like Pemberton, you are not there to check out the local movie theatre or visit City Hall. When you are visiting one of the most amazing coast mountain ranges in the world, you are there for the beauty of nature. Pemberton is surrounded by a number of awe-inspiring parks which are all located within a short driving distance from the Village of Pemberton. These parks include Birkenhead Provincial Park, Nairn Falls Provincial Park, Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, and of course the larger Garibaldi Provincial Park. And when you have completed your sightseeing through the Provincial Parks and are looking to relax your tired muscles, then why not explore one of the three Hot Springs located either in or around Pemberton.
Pemberton also offers an abundance of recreation opportunities for their locals and visitors alike, both in the summer and winter seasons. Since we are currently turning our back on winter and welcoming the spring sunshine, I will focus more on the summer activities. Well, where do I begin: should it be with the 2 marvellous golf courses, the countless water activities such as the always exciting Jet Boat rides, or should I start with the great fishing locations? No matter what type of activity you are looking to take part in, the Village of Pemberton offers it.
Now that you know just how amazing the mountain Village of Pemberton really is, why haven’t you made your reservations at the Greenwood Country Inn?

With a pond, hot-tub, jacuzzi-Suite, air-conditioned bird-theme rooms, native Art Gallery, wireless internet connection, and delightful breakfasts, the Greenwood Country Inn is the perfect place to rest and relax during your trip to Pemberton.
