Testimonials

“What just might be the best commercial rafting company in North America. The trips are spectacular beyond description, the guides are the best of the best, the food is incomparable, and the customers are treated like royalty.”

 

To all our past and present guests – Thank You!  At the end of every year we sift through the emails and the photos from all of you and it never fails to give us goose bumps, it never fails to make us happy (and a little sad), and it never fails to remind us of the power and beauty of our wild places and, even more importantly, of the unique and remarkable people we are lucky enough to spend time with on the river every season.

So, with your continued support, wonderful personalities, and adventurous spirits we will continue to keep and attract the best guides anywhere. We will continue to reshape the way river travel is run and to work towards setting the standard in trip quality and environmental responsibility. And we will continue to run rivers and add adventures that are the best in their class and that are off the beaten path.

To all past and present guests a huge –

“THANK YOU!”

  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Our family had a great trip down the Rogue with the Momentum group! Our guides, Jane, Willie and Anthony were great. They were so organized and willing to make the most of our 4 day adventure. I cannot believe how capable they are on the river, how much they can pack and how comfortable we all were."
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "We ALL loved the trip very much. One woman in our group said it was a "life changing" experience for her. I appreciated that all of the guides treated us with respect, even though a couple people had to walk most of the miles. I am thankful that they allowed them to do that and kept smiles on their faces and made them feel valued to be on the trip. Orea was an especially fantastic caretaker. Anthony too! The the young runners - well it is hard not to be happy with so much smiling and laughing going on! The trail was way better than I thought. I knew it would be beautiful, but I pictured a far rockier trail out in the full sun all the time. I was pleasantly surprised to find many stretches of smooth footing, in the shade, among the big trees and side creeks headed down to the river. The food was excellent! Absolutely no complaints. So decadent to have someone cook for me! LOVE that - wish I could do it in real life! It was all in all a fantastic trip. Might even have to do it again!"

  • California Salmon Rafting

    "First time river rafting at age 58 and we did class 4 rapids. We had early teen kids up to age 65 on our trip. With Eric's professionalism and experience and commands regularly blasting in my ear, we did great and I had an absolute blast. Would recommend this guide, company and trip without qualification to anyone."
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "I just wanted to thank you again for the great Illinois trip a few weeks ago, it was definitely one of the best multi-day trips I have ever been on and, as usual, the attention to detail that you and your guides adhere to is astounding and very much appreciated. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "We had an amazing two days spent with the Momentum crew! Our Guides were very experienced and taught us all so much about rafting on the Klamath. I was impressed by their hard work, professionalism, commitment to fun, and passion for rivers. The food was delicious, and they were extremely considerate of my dietary restrictions. Overall a fantastic trip I feel so grateful to have experienced!"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Can't wait to come back again. Adam, you were super great. Loved your laid back attitude yet I always felt like you had such a handle on the boat and all of us. Really cool!! Have fun this summer. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "This trip was an introduction to White water rafting for both my pre-teen kids and my 65 year old mother-in-law. I feel like I took them to the Louvre on their first visit to an art museum. If only I had a nickel for every time my 9 year old son turned to me after being swallowed up and spit out by a wall of water and said "that was AWESOME!". A confident guide, great water, a perfect mix of going big and catching our breath, as well as great food in a beautiful setting. We'll be back! That was AWESOME! Dave and Laura Beal Santa Rosa, CA."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Allan, your style of guiding and gentle ways of communicating, your vast knowledge of the area, and your inner love for what you do kept us in the present moment, and it was quite lovely! THANK YOU! Eric, what a well versed conversationalist and one with a gift to put people at ease in the first minute. THANKYOU! AND THEN there was the best driver every, MR Derrick,. No one felt seasick at this even keel pace, his love of life shines through and his plethora of the best burger in Ashalnd always helps on the drive form the take out . Each one of your staff are down to earth, talented, gifted, show that they care for our waters, our land, our planet and all the life above us, below us and around us. You should be very proud of these three team members, as they have sold me on my next years trips with momentum! expeditions ! Thank you for awakening the worry of what if's to the present moment. With gratitude and big heart smiles! "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Hey Alan, Thanks for writing! I actually have been meaning to write you guys and tell YOU thanks. Not only did we have a great time, but the entire trip felt astoundingly professional and informative, something I kept thinking over and over as were were preparing side-by-side with the other local tour companies whom appeared to just get in the raft and go; you guys were really awesome for a really great price and I can easily say that you've got me thinking about my next river trip already. Thanks again for all of your expertise, I really learned a lot while also having the time of my life. It had been almost ten years since I last rafted but I'm hooked again and I look forward to seeing you guys again soon! "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This was the 4th or 5th trip on the Upper Klamath with Momentum, and all have been fantastic. Jane, our guide, was excellent, keeping us safe but at the same time hitting all the big holes and waves to our enjoyment. Everyone in the company was excellent-this is a must do trip if you are ever in the area!!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Thanks again Anthony, you are the best! It was a perfect day! Thank-you, Denise"
  • Middle Owyhee

    "You were all great! I couldn't have had a better crew of guides and cooks for my first raft adventure. Thanks so much. "
  • Rogue High Adventure Kayaking

    "My family did an inflatable kayak trip with Momentum on the Rogue River. We all had a blast. The Rogue is a spectacular river, and offers some very exciting whitewater. We've done some other adventure trips, and all have had friendly and helpful guides. What set Momentum apart was the competence of all three guides - They all had plenty of experience in much tougher whitewater. This inspired confidence in the whole group, as well as making everyone safer. They could also cook! All the meals were delicious, with great service to boot. We're thoroughly spoiled for the next camping trip. One piece of advice - As Momentum states in their info, most kayakers will swim a rapid at least once during the trip. If this bothers you, pick one of their trips with rafting options."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This is 4th or 5th time with your company and we won’t raft with anyone else! Anthony was great, as are all your guides – I appreciate the level of skill and experience that they all have, so thanks for running a great company and having a great crew!"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Hi, Alan-- Thx so much for our short but eventful trip on the 1/2 day Rogue. Our family is hooked and we appreciate the quality of service that we received. The food was great and I can now say to people that we had a gourmet picnic on the Rogue River with watermelon, cinnamon and an excellent garlic torta, crackers and lovely scenery. Thanks for your personable nature. My daughter now knows about the rafting school and is all psyched to try it out. We will come back again! We are already talking about the whole day Upper Klamath trip for next year! Thx for a great trip. We will use your services again. "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "It was certianly a great time on the river! I thank you for making it all so good, especially for my family. You are all so much fun to be around. I was amazed by the set-up you all provided. A special thanks to Pete for running such a great company, hiring great people and maintaining a laid back attitude. Kudos. Also thank you for being such a competent guide, keeping us afloat isn't easy in all situations, but you did it. The area was full of wild beauty and you knew so many answers to my questions. I definitley respect the knowledge people gain about their area. The trip was the best graduation gift I could ever get. You guys rock! Have a sweet summer. "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Hey Pete, I just wanted to thank you, and the Momentum staff, for an amazing trip last weekend. I’m still trying to get over how completely beautiful a river the California Salmon truly is – it definitely deepened my love of whitewater rafting. You know it’s been an incredible trip when you’re already planning your next one on the way home. I think you may have created a monster. Thanks a lot, Pete!! ;-) You were an excellent guide, host, and hiking partner. Your knowledge, patience, passion for what you do, and good sense of humor made my trip an experience I’ll never forget. I’m already looking forward to my next trip with you and Momentum. Thanks again! All the best, -- Heather Liguore"
