Nestled between the exotic and magnificent tropical rainforest, flora, fauna, and enchanting history of the Balthazar Estate. The Balthazar River is fed from sources deep in the island’s interior. It is the ideal place for our Mt. Parnassus Inn guests to experience the unique blend of nature and adventure. This adventure is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
The Balthazar River is about a 40-45 minute drive from St. George’s and may be reached via the Grand Etang Rainforest Reserve’s hilly but gorgeous interior or the breathtaking Eastern Atlantic coastline.
