Extreme Tourists: Canyoning in Chile

We all awkwardly strap climbing harnesses over our wet suits. Traub goes first. Secured to a rope, she goes headfirst over the cliff side. It is 100 feet down and just yards from the most ferocious and most spectacular waterfall of the day.

What a sensation. It is like peeking into a secret world as the water sprays in your face and lush vegetation stares you in the eye.

Then, there is one final, very high jump. Kosmack screams as she does it.

Incredibly, maybe miraculously, we all survived. We're all smiling.

And we all know what canyoning is about.
