Situated at the foot of Mt. Currie amid a vast green-belt valley is Pemberton, a scenic 2.5 hour drive from Vancouver and a spectacular 20-minute drive north of Whistler.

A charming, rustic village that looks like something out of an Old West movie, Pemberton is blessed with stunning natural beauty. The area features some of BC's most beautiful provincial parks - Birkenhead Lake, Garibaldi, Joffre Lakes, Tenquille Lake and Nairn Falls - which makes it ideal for a wide range of outdoor recreational opportunities, including hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing and camping (particularly popular in Nairn Falls Provincial Park).

From easy 1.5 kilometre walks that lead to the dazzling Nairn Falls to more strenuous hikes - such as the challenging 11-kilometre trail to Upper Joffre Lake's crystal clear lake and breathtaking views - Pemberton offers a vast network of trails with awe-inspiring scenery and wildlife.
