"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."

  • "Momentum Rafting doesn't do themselves justice. We were extremely pleasantly surprised with the great food, the small groups, the knowledge shared, and the amazing river!! SO much less commercial than our last trip and so much more time on the river. And all at a really great price given all the extras."
  • "Pete, My husband and I just came back from the Upper Klamath rafting trip that we won in this year’s Willow Wind auction. Wow! What a fabulous trip! We were so impressed with the guides, the food, the camp, the food, the organization and attention to detail, the food, the river itself – oh, and the food! (There was even chocolate birthday cake with strawberries, delectable!). It was all amazing and we both feel so lucky that we got to go. Thanks for making it possible!"
  • "I know it’s rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. I have been rafting with many outfitters but they set the standard. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. We had an amazing trip..."
  • "Dear Pete, You can refer ANYONE to me ANYTIME and I will be happy to "represent" how absolutely incredible the trip down the Upper K is. Besides the remote and spectacular location and fantastic whitewater, to have the good fortune to enjoy you and Derek on my Birthday trip was beyond compare! We've come to appreciate your usual attention to EVERY TINY detail but for this trip, you were over the top! Among "BEST Birthdays" EVER, you shared so generously of your time, talent while keeping us IN the boat, never even needing to call a left or right turn you are so skilled! But the safety overall and the obvious caring you take to assure each guest has that "once in a lifetime to remember" experience is what sets Momentum over the top. Our sincere and muchly felt gratitude to you and Derek and that we will be back next year for our next whitewater adventure. You are a treasure Pete, your business and associates reek of what's important to you, how lucky for us! Lisa and the "WWSS girls""
  • "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"
  • "Hey Mike! We had a great time as well. We'll definitely be back next year. Marina "
  • "Ditto from me as well enjoy your well deserved balance of family, teaching and nature! If you know something about real estate I am in the market for a second home and ashland or it's river surroundings would be optimal. Take care and we'll do it again soon. Marc "
  • "This has to have been the best trip ever! I have been on guided hunting trips, climbs and rafting trips and nothing compares with Momentum. Our guide Tyler was very skilled and instilled confidence in his paddlers. He did not skirt around any white water, we hit it all. And he is an excellent bar tender and cook as well, along with Pete the owner. The camp, the food the equipment and the white water were everything one could hope for. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience. Hope to see you soon. -Ron"
  • "Just wanted to send our kudos and thanks to Alex, Rachel, and the folks at Momentum River Expeditions for an outstanding trip down the Klamath yesterday. Our guides were personable, proficient, and enthusiastic about their jobs. We knew we were in safe hands and loved being part of the crew. A wild ride in the rapids,quiet interludes and peeks at wildlife (even some pelicans!) delicious and healthy food, and entertaining stories - what more could you ask from a day on the beautiful Klamath?! We will definitely join you again."
  • "Pete, I want to express my thanks for a fantastic trip down the Klamath this last weekend. You and your team truly delivered a first class experience, from the knowledge and skills of the guides, to the food, and the orchestration of the entire event. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! You'll be seeing us again. All the best, Max Darnell "
  • "Thanks Alan, you were an outstanding guide!!!! I would recommend you in a heartbeat! "
  • "Just like this email, you find a way to make the extra effort..not just to sell the next trip either. You beat me to the email where I wanted to tell you personally "thank you" for being so generous and giving of your time and talent..know you have choices but you made the trip so special, so memorable..one of the best birthdays EVER, never to be forgotten and there you were, right smack dab in the middle of it. Today with Alan and Anthony, just as great (but for too short a time)..gals loved it, understand why we rave so about you guys and just generally how really special a person you are. Hope the rest of the season is a blast in a safe way, without incident other than the satisfaction people feel from having spent time with Momentum's super great folks..you lead the way Pete..in ways that are small but completely noticed! "
  • "Thanks Alan. You were a wonderful Guide. The boys really had a great time. Also, please be sure to tell whomever it is that needs to know, that Rachel was fantastic as well. As the front line contact, she made all the difference in the world in my choosing Momentum instead of another company. And, your services made it clear that I will always seek to book through Momentum rather than any competitor. In fact, when my nephews and I were discussing the probability of making it a yearly event, they insisted that we try to use the same company! Feel free to pass my comments along and even use them in advertising (without my last name) if it would be helpful."
  • "Kelly- yes, it was a great trip...I really need to do the longer trips, i wasn't ready to stop... Can you forward me Will's email? I gave him my card but didn't get his contact info. Want to make sure we stay in touch. Best- Jeff "
  • "Momentum is the best! Arden, Orea and Tyler are amazing. Thank you for a memorable and perfect trip!"
  • "Wow! Out rafting adventure down the Upper K was the most fun I've ever had! Our guide Erik was great; really knowledgeable not only about rafting but local history, the environment, and wildlife. And the food was great!! Thank you so much for such a great day. I can't wait to try the No.Cal. trip next year!!"
  • "Hi Anthony, Thanks for a great trip. I'll be sure to recommend you guys to other people and maybe we'll go again sometime. Later, Carolyn "
  • "Thanks Erik - it was amazing being on the river again. Looking forward to the next trip already. Salman "
  • "There aren't enough ways to say how awesome and fun our trip was! Our family of 5 took the 2-day Upper Klamath rafting/camping/kayaking trip. We were so lucky to have Mike and James (and Mike's wife, Amy) as our guides. They made the trip an unforgettable experience for us. They were so incredibly friendly, accommodating, and great cooks! Their operation is timed and planned to a tee and there was never a moment that we felt uncomfortable or worried. Thank you so much...we're already starting to plan our next trip with you guys!"
  • "Pete and Rachel, YOU ROCK as the river rocked, swirled flowed and gave us the greatest joy and laughter all the way down the Upper Klamath. I decided to go with Momentum having never heard of them so really it was on a whim and truthfully now that I have rafted with Pete I feel there is no where else to go. I felt safe because he was so very present with us and taught us the details of safety and truthfully we needed it because WOW the upper Klamath is a wild one with the greatest rapid runs and whitewater I have yet experienced before. I have rafted in many places but this was truly the best! I know, I know Pete.. Chile is next! Oh and let me not forget the great "Organic" food that Pete and Rachel supplied and prepared for us. Momentum is one of a kind that I highly recommend for your rafting pleasures!"
