  • "I am holding Momentum Rafting completely responsible for turning my entire family in to a bunch of....White Water Junkies!!!! There are very few times when all of us, with 3 teenagers, are all on the same page and 100% happy and present in an activity. This was one of those times. When our guide Robyn told our 3 kids to sit in the front of the raft and to simply enjoy a fun rapid that was coming up, and then proceeded to plow the raft in to a giant standing wave that completely drenched everyone on board, was one of the great highlights of our trip. The squeals and screams were priceless. All of the guides and the fabulous support crew worked extra hard to christen a new camp site and to make sure that everyone was well taken care of. The food was wonderful and the stories were entertaining. We are already scouting for our next river to conquer!! Thanks Pete!!"
  • "We are frequent flyers with Momentum. We have followed Pete and his expert crew from the rural Illinois river to the Futaleufu in Chile. This years trip was another amazing experience, The 3 day lodge trip on the Rogue provided abundant wildlife and comfortable beds. If you are looking for a raft company in Oregon or Northern Calif. look no further....go with Momentum."
  • "Hands down the best! Quality guides. Good food. Good communication. Just all around professional and competent. Makes for a safe and fun trip."
  • "Just wanted to let you know that we had an AWESOME time on our "Momentum River Expedition"!!! Eric, Ashleen, and Chad were great guides and really made our experience one that we will NEVER forget. They were wonderful with the kids. Tell them that they will all make great parents one day. The food was unbelievable, better than some "fine" restaurants that I have ate at. Camping will never be the same after this trip."
  • "Momentum Rafting doesn't do themselves justice. We were extremely pleasantly surprised with the great food, the small groups, the knowledge shared, and the amazing river!! SO much less commercial than our last trip and so much more time on the river. And all at a really great price given all the extras."
