  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "I took my 9 year old son for his 1st trip on the Rogue with Erik Jorgensen and we had an awesome time! I'd taken a 5 day Rogue River thriller trip years ago and was so delighted to have my son eager for his next trip thanks to Erik's skill and enthusiasm. Thanks Erik!!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We have returned from our week long family trip to the Ashland area and the highlight of our trip was the fantastic river rafting trip we did with you on the Upper Klammath. There could not have been a more perfect experience for each and everyone of us. We're still talking about it and will for a long time. Each of the groups think they had "the best" river guide. Personally, I think Arden (ours) was the best because we were in her boat. She was so much fun, such an expert, and we learned so much about the river. She was obviously extremely experienced and skilled, very safety conscious, and geared our boat to have the most joyful time possible. Loved her laugh!!! I would recommend you guys anytime! You are a first class organization. -Kathy"
  • "I wanted to thank your company and most importantly your guide, Anthony for a rollicking good time last weekend. My older son, Marty scheduled floats on both the upper and lower Klamath rivers, 6/21 and 22. It was in celebration of my 60th birthday. I am doing many different things to celebrate this event and the trips on the river were certainly a highlight. I am still high from the adventure. Kudos to Anthony for his navigational abilities and more importantly his leadership. He has a steady, assured manner that is both supportive, humorous and knowledgeable. I especially like the way that he handled my initial fear when scouting one of the rapids on the lower Klamath. He got me through with confidence and was certainly right in telling me that I “would regret it” if I didn’t take the waves. Following closely behind like a duckling, made it easy. Thanks again. I hope to “float’ with your company in years to come. "

  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Awesome trip- the best and most consistent whitewater we have run since the Apurimac in Peru. Couldn't ask for better guides- everyone was really friendly, helpful and very safety-conscious. And the food... and the wine-tasting...YUM!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This was a great day trip, exhilarating and more Rapids then we've ever had on a trip. Our guide Tyler was the best- fun, knowledgable on the area and a great raft guide. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "This is a big THANK YOU from New York! My husband and I just returned home and wanted to send you an e-mail thanking you and your team. We want you to know that your crew is absolutely wonderful. Everyone we spoke to and worked with was top notch and extremely helpful and professional. You have a great company and it shows and speaks volumes in your entire crew's spirit and teamwork. Your guides, Alex and Adam, are SUPERB! Both Alex and Adam are at the top of their game. They are very knowledgeable in their field, and it was very comforting, especially for newcomers. I wish to point out that it is the "little things" that often go unnoticed in a trip transaction, but Momentum River Expeditions takes it to a higher level for their customers---which my husband and I very much noticed and appreciated. From the "booking folks" to the drivers and especially your two very special guides--everyone was very kind and you could tell they were just "darn nice to the core" people. I was a nervous at first on the raft, but that only lasted a few seconds thanks to your guides. The guides taught us the necessary skills to have a fun and successful rafting tour. They were very informative about the local history too---which by the way was very interesting and impressive to hear about. Everyone on both rafts was "tuned in" and enjoying the history lessons. Really! The entire team knew exactly how to run the tour and the coordination was outstanding. Your crew are people friendly, nice and patient! Additionally, we loved the breakfast and lunch food selections. We hope to take another Momentum River Expeditions tour in the future! Please do let ALL your crew know how much we appreciated them! "

  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Alan, Jason, Mike and Adam, Many thanks to all of you for making an overcast, cold day a great rafting day in spite of all the challenges. You can be assured that I will keep a trip with Momentum on the schedule for the Germans in the years to come. Danke! Debora McCreedy "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This is a top-notch rafting company. Can't recommend them highly enough. Amazing attention to detail, fun but safe, guides are AMAZING. And the food rocks too."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Thanks Allan and Anthony, we had a blast as well. The crew had never experienced anything like that and to see them grabbing brochures after the float and contemplating how they would save up for another trip was pretty cool. We couldn't of had better guides either. As always with Momentum, great guides, great food and great customer service. We look forward to our next trip."
  • Lower Owyhee

    "Been back now in Sweden for over a week I look back at my film clips and pictures of the Lower Owyhee Trip May 15-19th and remember a very rewarding trip. The trip itself was more than I could ask for and also included some surprises (a k a wet clothes and gear). The weather was very cooperative, warm and sunny for most of the time. I found the scenery to be stunning and at the same time extremely varied Having been on some bigger rivers before I really enjoyed the smaller scale of the Owyhee that made it more intimate....also the rapids were numerous and fun (even more fun riding a Duckie). The food were just too good (I overate once), the camps were well thought out (camp of 4th night was my favourite). What also made this trip special was the hikes (they were all great). Some hikes like to the top of the chalk cliffs included a lot of elevation gain and others were relatively flat and easy. The hot springs were awesome (and hot!) Finally the guides were all excellent with much knowledge about rafting in general and also good problem solvers (we happened to became stuck on rocks in two rapids). The good spirit and mood among the guides (and guests) also made this trip memorable. -Mikael "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Sam, Sol, and Alan, I want to thank you all for making our trip down the Rogue a wonderful lifetime memory. To be able to share such a quality experience with our daughters was really priceless. Your professional, friendly, relaxed and attention to all of our needs made it a super easy vacation for us. Plus the food was amazing. Great job!"
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "My husband and I recently ran Momentum's raft supported, Rogue River Trail Run last weekend. We had an AMAZING time! Alex (our running guide) was so great! He was super supportive and very knowledgeable about many things. For example, some parts of the trail are a bit exposed and I have some issues with heights. He picked right up on that and even let me hold his hand, while I walked through those spots that made me a bit uncomfortable. Who does that? He does. I really felt like he went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience! The rest of the staff also went above and beyond...Orea far exceeded any culinary expectation we had. Arden was also fantastic! She kept us greatly entertained at camp with some extra site seeing adventures after our run. I just can not say enough great things about this team! From pick up to drop off, it was 5 star service! Alex, Orea and Arden could NOT have been any better! Not to mention, you could tell they all love what they do. They are simply the BEST! My husband and I will be talking about this run for years to come. THANK YOU to Momentum for making this such a memorable experience. Kristen "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "We are a family with 5 sons, ages 23-9, and we went on the 3 day lodge to lodge trip. The older boys, all very athletic, have never been so happy with a family trip-kayaking, rafting, swimming, and eating! The younger boys were challenged but safe using the kayaks and rafts. They got to see bears, eagles, turtles, etc. Mom and dad now feel 20 years younger. The guides, Erik, Robin, and Simon, were professional, experienced, and fun. We felt very safe in such capable hands. Excellent trip! Only two drawbacks...you might gain weight with all the good food, and you can't stay forever. "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "What really stood out above all was your commitment to safety. The river was BIG and all the measures you had in place to make us feel safe made the trip that much more fun..."
