About Momentum

Welcome to Our World! World-class rivers & wild places, small groups, and guides with a passion for guiding

We offer world-class rafting and adventure travel trips to select destinations abroad & in Northern California, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska. The areas are playgrounds of natural wonders, rich with cultural events, and overflowing with amazing whitewater and wilderness.

Guide-owned & operated we are a small company, allowing us to focus our energy, resources, and passion for guiding into every trip we run. Our trips are small with unparalleled personal service and a handcrafted quality and attention to detail. They are led by some of the finest guides anywhere – guides who have run some of the most difficult and beautiful rivers in the world, who love to share these places with others, and who are friendly and warm-hearted.

Momentum started with a van, two rafts, more rivers then guests, and a desire to “re-invent” the way rafting trips are run. Now we are honored to offer trips on all of the region’s most spectacular rivers – and with this region that says a lot. Although our trips and our company are still small, the richness and diversity of this area allows us to offer river adventures with a quality and a variety that is rivaled by few.

Our adventures range from mild to heart-pounding; from “wow, I can’t believe we just did that” rapids to jaw dropping beauty that can be enjoyed by three generations of family and friends; from day trips near our home in Ashland Oregon to 9-day wilderness journeys.  They are a mix of service, relaxation, excitement, and wild beauty – a chance to step out of civilization for a short time and step into a more simple and uncomplicated life.

While we do run some of the biggest rivers anywhere and visit some of the worlds most wild places; for most of our trips you do not need to be an experienced adventurer, an athlete, or even to have ever touched a paddle or spent a night under the stars. Our trips are designed for those who like or want to be introduced to the outdoors and our goal is to make these places we love accessible to everyone. So, whether you’re a first-time paddler or a seasoned traveler, join us for an adventure like no other!
