  • "I think I have been on a half dozen trips with Momentum (and dozens with other river outfitters so I know what I am talking about in this one limited area). Momentum rocks! Absolutely the best in every category. The guides are unbelievable in their knowledge of the suroundings and in their ability to make everyone feel welcome and challenged. The food is first class. Every trip is pure fun from dawn till late night. Website does a spectacular job of helping to select the best trips -- with buddies, with kids or with the grandparents. Excellent value. "

For me their kindness and caring made the adventure complete and gave me a satisfaction and long lasting impression that I’ll never forget!"
  • "I've rafted and kayaked rivers throughout the West. Our 6 days with Momentum on the Main Stem of Idaho's Salmon River was a good as it gets. The guides were experienced, hardworking, and attentive. Momentum's policy of hiring only guides with at least 8 years' experience is unusual, and it clearly is working for them."
  • "If you've never been on a rafting trip, go to MOMENTUM. If you have gone with another company and you thought you had a good time, try MOMENTUM. For those of you who have rafted with them, you already know....No IPADS, no TV, no Phones. It really resets your body and mind..."
  • "I know it’s rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. I have been rafting with many outfitters but they set the standard. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. We had an amazing trip..."
