  • "I am a veteran of over 100 whitewater river rafting/kayaking trips world-wide and I must tell you that absolutely the best outfitter I have experienced is Momentum River Expeditions. From the guide (Arden) to the shuttle driver (Alan) to the food (snack before the trip, lunch part-way down the river, snack at the take-out), to the equipment they use to the river rapids (in my view many long Class IV and one Class V- rapids), this trip was awesome! Not only do I wholeheartedly endorse Momentum for the Upper Klamath but I will book them for trips on the Scott and Cal Salmon also. You would be wise to go with this outfitter!"
  • "I wanted to take a moment to complement you on your company and crew. I took a quick trip down the Upper Klamath last Friday, July 3rd. I checked out your website which was definitely one of the best outfitter sites I've ever seen. I haven't been out on the water as much as I'd like and jumped at the chance to do so. Needless to say I was not disappointed. Eric was my guide for the day and as I'm sure you know his service is second to none. While I can't speak for the rest of the people that day, I can say that he made the experience that much more enjoyable. His knowledge of the area and his craft was nothing short of amazing. While I was with Eric most of the day, Adam, Jon E, and Derek where also equally as awesome; I had the opportunity to pick all of their brains at one point or another during the day. I grew up on the rivers of Montana and used the opportunity with your world class crew to sharpen my knowledge on the rivers of Oregon. Don't worry, I wont be starting an outfitting business anytime soon, I know I wouldn't be able to compete with the business you've started and fostered into a truly great business that has a solid future no matter the economic outlook. Thank you again for providing such a great service. Here at Nike one of the principles we live by is "There is No Finish Line". I employ you to adopt the same mentality. You have a truly great business and will only benefit to continue building upon it. -ACS "

They were WONDERFUL, CONSIDERATE and SO KNOWLEDGEABLE—-true professionals! It was such a memorable experience…..one that will last forever! "
  • "Best memory of our 2 week road trip! Our Momentum White Water Rafting Trip exceeded our expectations in ways you can’t imagine! Waterside lunch, wetsuits (all the other rafting companies let their clients FREEZE!) gregarious guides, and informed history of the river made this experience our favorite memory on our 2 week West Coast trip. Thank you!!!!"
  • "Great day to be alive!” Went on upper Klamath all day rafting trip with Tyler at Momentum. It was a great day on the water. I worked hard, ate lots and experienced the pure joy of living life fully and checking off rafting on my dream list."
  • "If you ever wanted to do white water rafting – take the 1 day rafting trip with Andy at Momentum! This heart pumping, adrenaline ride will kick you off your bucket list! … We are now thinking about a multi-day trip with Momentum! Great outfit with fantastic guides and drivers who love what they’re doing and it shows! Thank you for a wonderful day on the river! "
  • "As an old river guide, I am very critical of any trip that I take. This was one of the BEST that I have taken. Not only was the river exciting, but our guide, Andy, was one of the best that I have encountered in my rafting experiences. The food was well presented, fresh and extremely tasty. I give this trip a ‘double thumbs up’. I will do this trip again. I urge you to take it for an awesome experience."
  • "This was the best river rafting experience ever and we completely enjoyed our trip with Momentum: it was a perfect combo of excitement and comfort. Very very organised, great food, great equipment and an awesome rafting experience. We went with a big group of 9 people and upon our request they put us all in one big raft. We were also lucky enough to get Alan as our guide, he was very knowledgeable and expert in river guiding, we hardly had to work :). For some of us it was our first river rafting trip and most of us didn't know to swim, but Alan took care of everyone so well. I would strongly recommend Alan and rest of the company to friends, family and to anyone who wants to go rafting-and definitely try the upper Klamath! A super trip indeed!! So good that we plan to return for over night trip soon (I can't wait to go again). Special Thanks to Alan for making our trip memorable. "
  • "Hi Erik-We would love to share our comments, we had such a fun time!! It definitely went above and beyond our expectations. You guys are all very professional and down to earth and your passion shows with the quality of service you provide. Like I said before, you have an amazing company!!! Thanks again. ~Becky"

  • "This is 4th or 5th time with your company and we won’t raft with anyone else! Anthony was great, as are all your guides – I appreciate the level of skill and experience that they all have, so thanks for running a great company and having a great crew!"
  • "This was beyond the best experience, the guide Vikram was so outstanding very knowledgeable very helpful it was just so much fun!! And Tina was the nicest human I’ve ever met!! I just loved this experience so much. I will return! Todd"
  • "This is totally worth it! We had a great time with our awesome and knowledgeable guides Andy and Vikram. Thank you!!"
  • "Myself and two friends had the pleasure of rafting the Upper Klamath River for a 1 day excursion. We had Sam as our guide, who navigated the large class 4 rapids with great skill. I would highly recommend this trip for any adventure seekers such as myself! Momentum lived up to their name as a premier guide in the Southern Oregon area!"
  • "We took a wonderful day trip with Momentum on the Upper Klamath River. Terrific guide and wonderful sights along the river. Would love to go again!"
  • "My family of 6 (ages 20 to 55) had an amazing 1 day expedition on the Klamath River with Momentum River Expeditions and our guide, Arden. The day started with a winding ride from Ashland to the put in location, where we had a delicious continental breakfast (more than continental really). Wet suits, splash jackets, life vests and helmets were included, so we got dressed in our warm under layers and the rest of the gear and got loaded up. The first several miles of the 17 mile trek was warm up and practice time to get whipped into shape as a rowing team, then the next 7 miles were class 3 and 4 rapids. Tons of fun. The we stopped for an amazing lunch, which was included. After lunch we tackled more awesome rapids and finished up at the take out. Our guide, Arden was fabulous. She knew the river like the back of her hand, and shared cool stories about caves and homes and history along the river. We saw turtles, deer and even 2 ducks riding the rapids with us. Our driver Alan was also wonderful and very informative. It was a great day and one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend the Upper Klamath, Momentum, and Arden."
  • "Tyler, Thanks for running the UK with our crew of friends. We all had a tremendous time and look forward to doing a multi-day adventure next spring/summer."
  • "This was a great day trip, exhilarating and more Rapids then we've ever had on a trip. Our guide Tyler was the best- fun, knowledgable on the area and a great raft guide. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone."
  • "My Wife and I had an outstanding day on upper klamath trip. Our guide Andy lead us through some really exciting and beautiful whitewater. We look forward to our next river adventure!"
