"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."

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 - "THANK YOU!" For those who have not been on a rafting trip with us below are some highlights and then a rolling list of testimonials as they come in from our guests. You can also check out TripAdvisor.com and Yelp.com for even more. Enjoy!

  • "It was a lot of fun and you were excellent guides. We all felt safe and relaxed and well cared for. Peter and I agreed it was the best organised river trip we have ever been on and Peter especially has been on a lot. Please do pass our thanks on to Pete and Johnny too. Yes, we would love to come down the Rogue with you next summer. We will be in touch closer to the time!"
  • "I was not sure how I would feel about an all day river rafting Class 4 rapids trip having very little experience rafting and being generally risk adverse! However, this was a wonderful experience for me, as well as my husband and 13 and 17 yo children. Our guide, Anthony, inspired absolute confidence and skillfully negotiated the rapids. The trip was beautiful and fun and jumping into the river and swimming at the end of the trip was also a highlight."
  • "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."
  • "thanks for your mail and thanks for the great trip. I twas a great first time experience for Petra and has inspired me to go back to paddling again. I'll check your programs for next year - maybe we'll see each other again. "
  • "Trip was great- Alan,Simon and Faye were excellent! Have not been on the river since my college kayaking days but I am now excited to get back out. Will definitely pass along your outfit and recommend! -Mark"
  • "This was the 4th or 5th trip on the Upper Klamath with Momentum, and all have been fantastic. Jane, our guide, was excellent, keeping us safe but at the same time hitting all the big holes and waves to our enjoyment. Everyone in the company was excellent-this is a must do trip if you are ever in the area!!"
  • "Dear Tyler, We had an incredible trip and are already talking about the next river to run. Appreciate all our guidance and laughter down the river. We had such a good time. Thanks again for putting together that little birthday cake for my husband, super thoughtful you and the Momentum team."
  • "Just wanted to say I had an incredible time..... I have told everyone we had the best guide (not to discount the other guys).... and the purple boat was tops..... Thanks for your great guide work to get us into every ripple possible and your stories were welcome.... thanks for the stress relief and we are already talking about a return and filling the boat with other crazy friends and of course we will schedule when Jason is available..... thanks again and keep smiling"
  • "We had a wonderful time on the Upper Klamath River. Anthony guided us expertly through some great white-water, we had a superb breakfast and lunch, and really enjoyed the experience! We will be back for another trip with Momentum!"
  • "We had an AMAZING time with you, and are definitely planning on coming back next year; hopefully with a couple of friends and hopefully for a 2-3 day trip :) Alan, you did such a great job -- even Kris was able to get through her anxiety and to feel safe enough to have a blast :) We'll be asking for you to guide us again! Enjoy the rest of the summer :) "
  • "We had the fantastic family expience of rafthing the Upper Klamath with the Momentum Company and cannot believe how truly skilled, experienced, and absolutely wonderful the experience was for all 16 of us. We've rafted quite a few times in the past and this was better than all the others put together. Our guides were so fun and knowledgeable. Impossible to top this!"
  • "My husband and I went white-water rafting for the first time. We did the full day rafting on the Klamath. Momenturm made it a great experience! From the time they picked us up at our hotel in Ashland until we returned we were in capable hands. We were a little nervous at first, but with Jane's guidance and great skill we were soon comfortable and totally enjoying the river. Food was great also."
  • "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!"
  • "Thanks to YOU, Jonny, and the momentum crew, we had a great time! Anthony and Adam did and how much we enjoyed our trip. Thanks again for an absolutely fantastic rafting trip. We will have fond memories of our day rafting for a long time. -Jaylin "
  • "Simon, Now that we are back in the UK, I wanted to say thank you for making our one-day trip down the Upper Klamath a highlight of our stay in the USA. My wife, our 14-year-old son and I, all enjoyed it immensely. Firstly, it's a great river with dramatic sections, stunning scenery and lots of wildlife; there is also a good flow even in August: I still find it hard to believe that in the calm sections between the rapids the river visibly slopes downhill. Secondly your organisation is very professional, but also personal, with pre-trip confirmatory e-mails and a pickup from our campsite that was bang on time. But most importantly, more than an experienced guide and an excellent raft-Captain, your knowledge of the area and enthusiasm for the experience was infectious and added hugely to the overall enjoyment. This was, as billed, an exhilarating wilderness experience not a theme park ride which we will all remember for many years to come. Thanks again to you and all at Momentum. And thanks for finding such good companion rafters too. Best wishes, John"
  • "It was just the right amount of time for a river rafting trip to last. The lunch was delicious, with lots of fresh fruit! The guides were fun and made us feel safe and like he actually needed us to paddle. It was such a fun trip! I would definitely go again."
  • "We're happy to report that we have never enjoyed a river trip as much as we did this one. The guides were personable, knowledgable and really laid out a wonderful lunch at the side of the river complete with a local character named Rodrigo the squirrel. We felt safe even though there were many challenging rapids and we'd do this again in a heart beat. Thanks!!!"
  • "Fabulous river adventure in class 3 and 4 rapids. Great food, great guides, we loved Tyler and felt safe with him. It was a great experience of a lifetime. Worth every penny, and then some. What a rush! Go Momentum!"
  • "Thank you for providing the employees of Jacksonville Inn with a wonderful and exciting day on the Upper Klamath River. The skills of the guides made each and every one of us comfortable on the river, and the food was definitely beyond our expectations. All in all, Momentum Expeditions is definitely a first-class operation and we will not hesitate to recommend your service to our guests. -Higgins "
