"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 -

5"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!" - Karen
5"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..." - Jon
5"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""
5"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." - Carrie
5"This trip was an introduction to White water rafting for both my pre-teen kids and my 65 year old mother-in-law. I feel like I took them to the Louvre on their first visit to an art museum. If only I had a nickel for every time my 9 year old son turned to me after being swallowed up and spit out by a wall of water and said "that was AWESOME!".
A confident guide, great water, a perfect mix of going big and catching our breath, as well as great food in a beautiful setting. We'll be back!
That was AWESOME!

5"Thank you Mara, as for myself, that was the most fun I have ever had rafting! I think everyone else already knew what to expect... I however had only experienced the mellow (seems completely mellow now) Rogue and Illinois rivers.
I will definitely be back next year!
Thanks for an awesome time!
This is Heather and I just wanted to say thank you again for such an awesome trip down the river! This was my first time and I am now hooked, totally the best way to travel! :)
5"I never went whitewater rafting before and now, thanks to you guys, I am hooked and can hardly wait to go again. Trouble is, I wouldn't want to go without you! ...But What an Awakening! I'd forgotten how much I love the water and, specifically, how much fun I have when rocketing through it! Could hardly stop grinning. To top it off, I was surrounded by an environment for which I got a history lesson and a deeper sense of awe and appreciation. Loved my time with you, especially Adam, whose raft I felt lucky to be on. (This guy's a pro...wonderful!) I highly recommend having a day exactly like mine was when we were there with you."
We had a blast and you made it happen! Your skills, knowledge, and passion made even the scariest parts exhilarating fun for a whitewater wimp like me. Great trip from start to finish...you guys are awesome.
Thanks so much!
5"Thanks Kelly! I had a great time!
Enjoy the rest of your summer.
5"The best one day vacation ever. Upper Klamath rapids did not disappoint and Mike , our guide, was awesome. I will be back for more adventures through Momentum!"
5"This is a big THANK YOU from New York! My husband and I just returned home and wanted to send you an e-mail thanking you and your team. We want you to know that your crew is absolutely wonderful.
Everyone we spoke to and worked with was top notch and extremely helpful and professional. You have a great company and it shows and speaks volumes in your entire crew's spirit and teamwork. Your guides, Alex and Adam, are SUPERB! Both Alex and Adam are at the top of their game. They are very knowledgeable in their field, and it was very comforting, especially for newcomers.
I wish to point out that it is the "little things" that often go unnoticed in a trip transaction, but Momentum River Expeditions takes it to a higher level for their customers---which my husband and I very much noticed and appreciated. From the "booking folks" to the drivers and especially your two very special guides--everyone was very kind and you could tell they were just "darn nice to the core" people. I was a nervous at first on the raft, but that only lasted a few seconds thanks to your guides. The guides taught us the necessary skills to have a fun and successful rafting tour. They were very informative about the local history too---which by the way was very interesting and impressive to hear about. Everyone on both rafts was "tuned in" and enjoying the history lessons. Really!
The entire team knew exactly how to run the tour and the coordination was outstanding. Your crew are people friendly, nice and patient! Additionally, we loved the breakfast and lunch food selections.
We hope to take another Momentum River Expeditions tour in the future!
Please do let ALL your crew know how much we appreciated them!
Thanks for a great time!
Here's a review I just posted on Yelp and TripAdvisor along with 5 star rating;
I just returned from a fantastic 2 day trip run by MRE on the Upper Klamath near Ashland. They picked us up at our hotel. Guides were great-- cheerful, hard-working, knowledgeable, experienced. They did all the heavy-lifting, food prep, etc. Rapids were thrilling, food was great, pace was just right. A two-day vacation felt like four days.
Last year I went with MRE on a three day rafting trip on the Lower Klamath. It was superb and included a fantastic side-trip hike up a stream to some hidden falls. They're a great company!
5"Pete, you're welcome. We all had a great day. It was definitely the high point of our stay in Ashland. Thanks from all of us.
5"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..."
5"I recently had the pleasure of being your guest, along with 15 of my colleagues from the Math Department at SOU, on the upper Klamath River. Many of us were doing white water rafting for the first time. We simply had a wonderful time. Your crew and guides were fantastic! We were fed delicious food, given excellent instructions, and our guides made sure we all had a fun and safe float down an awesome river. Thanks to you all for making our time so special.
5"My family had a great day trip on the Upper Klamath River. The staff, Kelly, Anthony and Kate, were outstanding. The were extremely well orgainzed, well trained and a lot of fun to spend the day with. They were instrumental to making this a fun day with a lot of action!
Owen and I had a blast on the river - Owen can't stop talking about it - we are at his sister and brother-in-law's right now and every other conversation brings us back to the rafting experiences. Thanks you so much for being such a terrific guide - we are already talking about coming back next year to do the river again and perhaps taking in a show. Great job!!!
Yvonne and Owen
5"Thank You Eric,
We have been talking about what a great guide you are. It was really nice to be out with a mature guide who doesn't do crazy things. Instead you gave good clear direction and lots of information about the river and its histroy.
Thank you. We have been telling all our friends and neighbors about our white water experience and have told them when they go with Momentum they should ask for you.
5"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."
