Testimonials

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!”

  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Fabulous river adventure in class 3 and 4 rapids. Great food, great guides, we loved Tyler and felt safe with him. It was a great experience of a lifetime. Worth every penny, and then some. What a rush! Go Momentum!"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi! We had an AMAZING trip, thanks! "
  • Middle Owyhee

    "What a fabulous crew! A more hardworking, congenial group is hard to imagine. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful river with the "Buffalo River Rats"!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "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. The canyon was spectacular and the water so clear. I Loved being the captain of my own inflatable kayak. Then on to the thrills of the Upper Klamath. The rapids were long and spanky and our guide Anthony was an expert at finding the perfect lines. We loved it so much we did it again the next day. If you are looking for a raft company in Oregon or Northern Calif. look no further....go with Momentum."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "We just got back form our Rogue camping trip with Simon, Jane, and Cooper. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the journey and these three marvelous guides. We had the absolute best time and can't wait to do it again. The guides were AMAZING-truly gifts. They were positive, professional, enormously fun, and just plain old wonderful to spend time with. They really made the trip unforgettable. -L.M."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "How much better can it get when you combine 3 of the things I love - food, wine and river rafting! Truly a culinary adventure, and flawless execution by Momentum River Expeditions, Troon Winery and Farm to Fork Events. It was a fabulous time each day on the Rogue River, with some fun Class III and sometimes Class IV rapids, then we would arrive at the camp that was the envy of all other passer-bys on the river, settle in, and then enjoy amazing gourmet meals all sourced locally in Oregon, and prepared by David Padberg and Matt Domingo, with wine pairings from Troon Winery, poured by the owner himself Chris Martin! Our guides from Momentum made sure we were always comfortable and having the best experience - wilderness at its best - Thank you to Pete, Robyn, Orea, Rebecca, and Simon! I cannot wait until Farm to Fork River Adventure #3 next year!!"
  • Idaho Salmon - Rafting the River of No Return

    "We had the best time ever on the Salmon River with you guys! It was a fantastic experience and we hope to raft with you again next year. Thank you for everything. Mike and Lori "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Thanks for a great trip! We loved it! Best. Scott and Marc "
  • Lower Owyhee

    "I am normally a Budget Traveller, but splurged on the Lower Owyhee Trip this year. I was so glad I did: Incredibly nice and competent guides helped us keep warm and cheerful even in pouring rain and 25 mph winds . Because they cared for us so well ,we could appreciate the incredible beauty of the river and canyon and everyone of us was so glad we went ( even our nearly 80 year old friend was happy and comfy and dreams of going again. Hurray for Andy, Jessi, Sam, Mike and the entire Momentum Team!"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Erik, Thanks for the note. We too had a very nice time, thanks to our wonderful guide, great weather, and an amazing river. Brian "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "It was a great trip. Food was excellent. Guides worked extremely hard in great spirits; the business has good equipment; the Aussie did a thorough job of training and laying out expectations before embarking and Alex, our personal guide was a veritable encyclopedia of flora, fauna and area history - plus a really weird sense of humor (just kidding). And last but not least, this trip probably has the biggest and most concentrated sets of waves in summertime Oregon rafting."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Three of us took the Upper Klamath trip in mid-August and had a blast! Momentum staff were very accommodating in terms of fun, fuel (super breakfast and lunch) and fables (between rapids there was time to share stories)! Definitely will do this again. Thanks. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Erik, Thanks again for outstanding rafting guiding. The next day, Marc and I took your suggestion and hiked to the Raine Falls from near Morrison's Lodge. It was outstanding!! You people have chosen a great place to settle down! Along that trail somewhere I mentioned to Marc that it would be fun to have a beer(s) with you, as you seemed so full of information, whether it be rafting or history. Thanks again, Chip "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Dear Pete, Mike and Anthony! It was a amazing trip! I don’t know where I should begin telling you how much I enjoyed it and appreciate all your hard wonderful, astounding, great, remarkable, amazing, significant, SWEET trip! I’ve been thinking for the whole week what I should write to you. Whenever I had an idea of what to write I wrote it on a small piece of paper, and put it next to me. In fact, last night, while I was lying in bed, I had an idea. I wrote it down and put it with the collection. The problem is, is that the papers somehow got to be all over the house. I really enjoyed the river and camping! No. I take that back. I enjoyed the river and camping but it wouldn’t have been the same without the three awesome guides! It passed soooo quickly! After looking forwards to it for soooo long, it was much better than I even expected. I’ll try to find the notes, and then write you another e-mail. Now, we are leaving to my grandparents’ house and the whole family is rushing me out….. Hope to see you in Israel! Chana "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Thank you for your kind email sent after our afternoon on the Rogue with you. Henya and I had an absolutely wonderful trip with you as our guide. Your skills as river rafter, congenial host, and fun companion are superb! I will most certainly recommend you, and Momentum, to friends. Thanks! "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "So much FUN!! Alan, our guide, was awesome. He made the experienceI Fantastic.I have gone rafting twice and Momentum has been great both times. Mike was my guide on my first trip and he did a great job. I am sticking with MOMENTUM!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Greatest trip of my life...The kayaking in white water was outstanding. Can't say enough about our guides (Anthony, Tyler, and Cooper). I would trust them on any future trip. They had it all together: best food including presentation, meeting our every need, and showing continual concern for our safety. This trip was a gift from my son. I would love to go on future trips. Would love to recommend this activity to anyone with questions. I am 71 yrs old and could never have succeeded in kayaking without the help of the guides and the other eight men on the trip. "
  • Middle Owyhee

    "Pete: Just had to let you know that Rachel Ward is probably the best raft guide that I have ever rafted with. (and I’ve done some major rivers) We were all fairly terrified of the Middle Owyhee, especially in the beginning, and she kept us safe, well fed, and happy. Jason and Adam were great too. Thanks for employing such a world class veteran. Please give her a bonus. Nancy"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Did a 3 day rogue trip with my daughter Memorial day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. She Kayaked most of time and I did part of the time. It's great to have that alternative. I've done two guided fishing trips and one raft trip with a friend down the Rogue and this was the most enjoyable. Tyler was very accommodating. We stayed in lodges which was fantastic. perfect mixture of adventure and comfort."
