An adventure tour company in Brazil provides travelers a picnic meal on a table hanging 90 meters above the famed Cascata da Sepultura waterfall.

An American couple recently shared a video of the experience on their Instagram account, showing them seated at a wooden table on a zipline connected to the waterfall’s edge enjoying their meal surrounded by the picturesque natural landscape of the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.

The caption reads: "Would you have lunch above waterfall?"

The video quickly went viral on social media with over 12,000 likes and 1,000 comments.

"Oh hell no a big HELL NO, but happy for you," wrote one supportive but cautious commenter.

"People playing with their life too much," a wary and unencouraging commenter wrote.

Visitors can book the experience through local adventure firm Rota Aventura, which describes the waterfall dining tour as "a non-traditional picnic in the middle of the most beautiful waterfall there is."

The experience includes a hike to the falls, including a river crossing via rope swing platform at the edge of the waterfall.

For the picnic, the couple are harnessed into the chairs and table with the prepared food secured to it and a rope hoists them slowly until they float gently above the falls and hover for their meal.

The experience lasts about 15 minutes and costs $450 for two people, including photography and drone footage.
