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!”

  • Lower Owyhee

    "Our 4 day Middle Owyhee rafting trip was canceled due to low water, but we were offered a 5 day rafting trip on the Lower Owyhee at the same price. We immediately said yes and it was an awesome trip. Only the two of us made the switch so we had a smaller, more fun raft and two guides to ourselves. Orea and Cooper were excellent rafters and great guides. The scenery was outstanding and the food was great. Best rafting trip ever!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Hi Tyler, Arden, and Simon, You all are the greatest! We had an absolutely fantastic time and I was so impressed with you all! Our trip wildly exceeded my expectations (even though this was my first ever rafting trip!), and each of you was responsible for helping make it one of the most enjoyable adventures I've ever been on! Thank you again for everything and we look forward to seeing you all on another adventure!"

  • California Salmon Rafting

    "I am just writing to let you know that we had such a mind-boggling time on the Upper Klamath! Everyone was consistently talking about how great of trip it was, and how the FOOD WAS AMAZING! Moreover and most important the staff (Anthony, Glenn, Adam, Julie and Derrick) who were just unbelievably super! I believe our group bonded with them and we all just had such a rockin time ( Glenn: Rock on!..inside joke:)) Your staff just left us with such a vast impression we all decided that your number one in our trips to come( By the way we are already planning it!) Cal Salmon here we come!!! Lol! Please thank the crew for us again and I can’t thank you enough for running such an organized and welcoming company! You know what they say, “Big things, come in small packages” Once again, Thank you and you will definitely be hearing from us again! Sincerely, Veronica and the troop "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Anthony and Simon (and Fay), Wonderful trip to a stunning river! We appreciated every aspect of the trip -- the river, the guides and staff, THE FOOD AND WINE, the attention to detail, the great conversation and especially the professionalism of everyone involved. Best wishes for the rest of the season and we hope/plan to see you again on a river somewhere. "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Tyler, Thanks for running the UK with our crew of friends. We all had a tremendous time and look forward to doing a multi-day adventure next spring/summer."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I was one of the 11+ people on the Austin Adventure 2008 and had a wonderful time. The guides were so kind, friendly, experienced and also great cooks, that I let any anxiety go right away. The equipment saved us from freezing on the second day of the trip, so thank you for that too! And we adored Millhouse! Hope to see you again next year! Lyra and Peter Josefsson"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "We had so much fun and are still talking about it! You are a lively river guide and we loved that we felt safe yet challenged! If we dont make it to one of those lovely rivers next Spring, rest assured, we will be planning our 50th Birthdays there! (closer than you think)."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hello Alan - thank you so much - truly the rafting was the high point of our trip. I will be recommending you, Momentum, and the Upper Klamath to everyone I know! Joel "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "We thank you! The boys really enjoyed their trip and are eager to return, maybe next summer. I would like to commend you for all the little games, practice runs of what to do in case someone falls overboard, how to get back in the raft and how to float in case you don't get back in immediately. What an ingenious idea! Wish I would have been so wise when I took my friend out on our maiden rafting voyage on the Sandy, could have saved myself raft puncture repair costs. Oh well, I wouldn't have had the same memories. Again, I thank you for the great trip and will recommend you to anyone considering a rafting trip on the Rogue. You are a delight! "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Very good instructor, gave us lots of historical background of the areas and was very knowledgeable. The rafting was great, refreshing, and the best part was at the end of the trip...its a suprise"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "OMG ... What an incredible family reunion with the most amazing guides, camping hosts. Can't say enough. Trip of a lifetime. Thank you sooo much!!!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Hi Erik-We would love to share our comments, we had such a fun time!! It definitely went above and beyond our expectations. You guys are all very professional and down to earth and your passion shows with the quality of service you provide. Like I said before, you have an amazing company!!! Thanks again. ~Becky"
  • Middle Owyhee

    "An adventure of epic proportions! Our trip was intimate, exciting, and challenging. Great water, even greater food, and our superior guides created the perfect atmosphere for river revelry! Ken had never been in an IK, and now he is hooked. We look forward to our next trip with you!"
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "This is a review of the running trip along the rogue river trail. The camp support was wonderful, tents and pads were all set up and comfy. The food was fantastic. A big thanks to Orea, Anthony, Jace, Ghelfi, and Jenn. We had plenty of support while running, and we had so much fun with our fellow runners and guides once we got to camp. I would recommend Momentum Running Trips to anyone interested in some fun and beautiful scenery (with great guides). An extra excellent for the food!"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "We took the half-day trip on the Rogue with Arden and Mike. Everything about it was excellent--professional, fun, great rapids. Arden, who ran our boat, was terrific--in control and full of interesting information about the river. I highly recommend this company. "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Just returned from my trip on the Cal-Salmon/Scott Rivers. I live in Cincinnati and this is my second year with Momentum in Oregon/California. Need I say more? Momentum delivers everything it promises - awesome, safe rafting; excellent guides; excellent food; and incredibly friendly people. Thanks especially to our guide, Anthony. You were awesome. "
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "Get some Illinois action. This is the group to trust. Having a guided trip down the Illinois in the Spring is a luxury only the most experienced boaters can competently complete. Now it's available to the masses. Amazing!"
  • Lower Owyhee

    "Thanks for running an amazing Lower Owyhee trip last week! As the guides on the trip will attest, I absolutely loved the food! I heard from one of the guides that Pete is considering publishing a cookbook. I'd be first in line to buy it!!! Thanks - and see you on the Cal Salmon ASAP!"
