  • "It far exceeded my expectations, I don't think I can ever take another river trip with another company. You made Zach's 40th celebration absolutely amazing... blew all expectations out of the water. Will definitely return again!" - Melanie
  • "We had an amazing trip down the Main Salmon River with Momentum. We had my Dad's 80th birthday on the river, grandkids, aunts, uncles.....ages 14 to 80 and everyone had a BLAST! The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and cooked great meals. Arriving to camp and having everything set up for you was a pleasure. I have been on many a river trip and they say you are pampered....nothing compared to Momentum! Bar and hors d'oeuvres ready for you as you get off the river, the sun sets and you relax while the guides cook 4-star worthy meals. Sam was a great leader and was able to keep the teens having fun every minute of the trip! Lane, Rick, Derek, Sammie (our kayak guide) Shana, Elsa... everyone was great! Planning another trip next summer with Momentum. (Safari-Style)" - Kelly
  • "This was one of the best trips I have ever taken in my life. It exceeded my expectations. I absolutely loved how your employees and guides take care of everything and how everything is just so perfectly planned. I love the attention to details. Our guide Mark was phenomenal. He was funny, informative, caring, fun, challenging, and an absolute blast. Although I didn't get to raft with Katy, every time I hung around with her, she was just amazing. I loved every part of this trip. I organized this trip as a guys trip to celebrate my 40th bday and it was absolutely what I was looking for. Thank you for existing. Thank you for your vision. And thank you for helping me have an unforgettable 40th celebration. Best river rafting company in the world! " - Tomas
  • "You run the best business and hire the best people I have ever been with on the river. Runner up isn’t even close… Great entrepreneurship, customer service, and execution skills are rare, but you have them all going on inside the same shop. (Safari Style Trip)" - Sean
  • "The Best – Our family has been on two rafting trips with Momentum, the Klamath and the Rogue, and they were really first rate. The guides are very experienced and great company, the food is excellent, and they make sure you have a wonderful ride without compromising safety in any way. They go the extra mile on everything e.g. providing gluten free food for one of our party, sending out a guide early in the morning to get the best camping sites, playing games with the kids in the evenings and so on. An extra notch above any other rafting company we have been with. Highly recommended."
