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!”

  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We’ve owned a home on the Klamath River for 12 years now. It’s beautiful to watch “Old Man River” go by. But we see people boating the Klamath in rafts and kayaks, and we’ve always wanted to do that ourselves. So when our lawyer/mediator brother suggested he’d pay for a rafting trip on the Upper Klamath, to celebrate his wife's birthday, we jumped on board. There were just four of us on this raft, captained by our unbelievably strong thirty year old guide, Tyler. The long, intense rapids were ominous class threes and fours. Tyler was propped upright, leaning against a 2 by 6 in the back of the raft, wielding two massive oars, and we four terrified neophytes were hunkered down with paddles, two on each side of the boat, in front of him. When Tyler said “paddle,” it meant paddle like hell, because we were approaching or right in the middle of the most violently churning water we’ve ever seen. A lot of our paddling yielded nothing but air, since the boat was forced way up out of the water half the time during a class 4 rapid. But Tyler kept us safe and moving through the water. He had the most muscular upper body we’ve ever seen on a compact frame, and he needed every bit of his strength to push us through those rapids. If we had been able to relax and look around, the scenery would have been breathtaking. But we couldn’t really enjoy it at the time, as we were always tensing for the next rapid or trying to rest leg and foot muscles that we had brutally wedged into the boat to keep from being thrown from the raft into the teaming surf. Three of us actually did fall back into the raft at least once."

  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Hey Alan! Thanks for the great experience and thanks for being such a solid guide. I live down here in Sacramento and plan on trying out a trip on the American River soon. It probably won't be as nice as the Upper Klamath, so I'll just have to make do. We will see you next year if all goes as planned. Have a great Summer. "

  • 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!!"

  • 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!"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "from the moment we were picked up to being returned to our car Alan and the crew made us feel really welcome, my wife and I had a fantastic day on the upper klamath river, excellent white water, wildlife and they fed us a lovely breakfast while unloading the boats, a superb lunch and a snack while they loaded the boats for our return to Ashland, thanks again for a superb trip."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Kelly, Well, we also had a terrific trip. Just a moment ago we were telling about it to a friend, how unique it was, the river, camping near the river, and - not to forget - the frontier road trip (is Cathy already over it?). We also liked the people in the group very much. Unfortunately we didn't exchange mail-adresses. We will recommend your business to anyone who considers rafting in the west! "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Once again, Momentum's day trip on the Rogue was the highlight for our German exchange students. Their fun guides, excellent attention to detail, reliable transportation, great snacks and affordable pricing make them the gold standard for student trips. Many thanks to Pete and his crews for making such great memories for our students three years in a row. Danke!"
