Testimonials

“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 –

“THANK YOU!”

  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "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."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "This is a top-notch rafting company. Can’t recommend them highly enough. Amazing attention to detail, fun but safe, guides are AMAZING. And the food rocks too."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "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!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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."
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "“As someone who has rafted on commercial trips all over the western U.S. for over 15 years now, I can say without hesitation that your company is the FINEST outfit I have rafted with. The Cal Salmon trip was probably the best trip I have ever been on.” "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I should be thanking you. I had a great time on the river, it's always good to get out on a river and soak up a few rays. I should also be thanking you for putting up with all of my generic and I'm sure rather annoying questions, I learned a great deal. I can truly say that you (Jon E, Big D, and Adam) and MRE are best in class when it comes experience, personality, and true passion for what you all do. MRE is first on my list...without fail. Thanks again for an awesome time. Cheers, ACS "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "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!"

    "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. Les "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Dear Pete, Robyn, Jason and Chad, I can only echo Nancy's comments. Many, many thanks for such a tremendous trip. We enjoyed ourselves immensely, and we bring back wonderful memories. The commitment and heart that you brought was fabulous - and shined in every aspect of the trip. You always went the extra mile and anticipated what we would need or want to do long before we knew ourselves. Congratulations on building an organization that brings such joy, fun and laughter to its clients, while executing with the highest professionalism and standards. It is quite an achievement. We'll check out the photos on Facebook - thanks! Also, Nancy and I were talking about trying to get a recommendation up on Yelp...either we'll figure it out or we'll have one of the kids do it! Momentum deserves the highest kudos! I hope you have a great rest of the season. If any of you are in the Bay Area, please let us know. We'd love to see you and can even provide beds! Cheers and hugs to all, Ann "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Beautiful scenery, knowlegable guide, good food and hot showers at the end of each day. Thanks Anthony for a wonderful 3 days."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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!"
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Arden and Anthony- Thanks so much for all you did. It was a glorious weekend, and one I'll not soon forget. I hope to put some of the fundamentals you taught us to use on the Rogue in a couple of weeks. Maybe one day someone will find the camera, watch the video, and bear witness to the wrong way to paddle Dragon's Tooth!"
  • Middle Owyhee

    "We're headed out on another adventure so I don't have much time for all the great feelings we have about the trip. It was a glorious trip. The scenery was as fantastic as we had anticipated and the weather even cooperated. The tents were easy, the pads cushy, the splash jackets perfect and the food terrific. But the contribution that you guides made to the enjoyment of the trip was immeasurable! "
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "Tyler, Craig, Ryan and Mike, What an incredible adventure! I truly appreciate how hard your team worked to ensure that our group had an amazing time, and we absolutely did. The trail running was awesome and not only were Mike and Ryan there every step of the way (literally) to ensure we made it to our next destination safely, they were a whole lot of fun to run with. Impressive ultra runners and truly great guys. The river team (Tyler and Craig) was equally impressive. With a boat waiting in case we opted not to run, camp ready when we arrived, and plenty of exceptionally delicious food to enjoy (vegans did not miss out!!) I loved how your team worked together to make the experience fun and memorable. I can't stress enough how much we appreciate your dedication to creating a great trip for the whole group (with very diverse needs) and your attention to every detail. Our Rogue River running trip did not disappoint. The river was gorgeous, the trail challenging, the company (Momentum) exceptional, and a snake ate a fish. I have nothing but rave reviews. Many many thank yous."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Dear Mara, We all had such a lovely time, for 3 days every minute was wonderful. Thank you for making it so special for all of us. -Lamees"
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Once again - you guys rock!!! Thanks for a terrific time. Just a question, though. Which outfitter of the 2 to go with if we decide to do Cherry Creek? Know there are 2 - which would you guys trust? Any hints as to where to stay or best time to go? Looking at you for this info especially Anthony. Thanks - Anne, Chris and Kris"
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "Pete, Yesterday I completed a trip on the Illinois with Arden and Simon as my guides. It was a great four days and they are both extremely competent professionals. I would recommend Momentum without hesitation to my friends. I look forward to my next trip with your company. With best regards, Sam Miller"
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "I and six of my friends in our mid 20s did a 4 day trip with Momentum (three days on the Cal Salmon and one day on Clear Creek). I could not speak more highly of this outfitter: guides were friendly and knew what they were doing, food was spot on, and the place was incredible. Highly recommend."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "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!"
