Why Choose Momentum?

Enjoy river trips in small groups, with unparalleled personal service, and with guides who have a passion for guiding.

  • You will enjoy these amazing places in small groups:

    Our trips often consist of only two boats(7-12 people total). This means more personal service, attention to detail, and a greater experience. We only book large trips for single large groups


  • We are a small guide-owned and operated company:

    This means that the owner guides many of our river trips to ensure that all trips offer the kind of experience that made us fall in love with river running.


  • All of our guides have at least 8 years of guiding experience:

    Safety is always our first concern, and this starts with our guides. We draw from a pool of some of the most talented guides anywhere. All of our guides have at least 8 years of guiding experience and have guided on many of the world's most difficult whitewater rivers (Many have guided over 15). Nobody offers this kind of top to bottom experience.


  • Our Guides are guides in the truest sense of the word:

    Not only are they talented river runners, they also truly enjoy sharing the outdoors and their outdoor experiences with others. Whether you’re a complete first-timer or someone who has boated around the world, you will be treated with respect and kindness.

  • We pride ourselves on unparalleled personal service:

    From when we first talk to you on the phone until we drop you off at your hotel. We always go the extra mile, with things like hot soup on cold days and morning coffee or tea brought to your tent. Not only will your river trip be the most fun trip you'll ever take, it will also be the most comfortable.


  • We love food! For some of us, cooking is our second passion:

    Our food is homemade, diverse, and served with a combination of style and wilderness practicality. Whenever possible we use local and organic produce and free-range meats. We can safely say we serve the best food in the area.

  • We have a strong commitment to the environment and its wild areas:

    This includes taking measures such as using local and organic food, composting on all our trips, offsetting our carbon emissions, and actively supporting good environmental causes and groups. We are strong believers in the models set by companies such as Patagonia and believe business can inspire solutions to the environmental crisis.

  • Most importantly:

    WE HAVE FUN! We love what we do, and it shows in the trips we run.
