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.

“THANK YOU!”

  • Lower Owyhee

    "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 Rafting

    "I am holding Momentum Rafting completely responsible for turning my entire family in to a bunch of....White Water Junkies!!!! There are very few times when all of us, with 3 teenagers, are all on the same page and 100% happy and present in an activity. This was one of those times. When our guide Robyn told our 3 kids to sit in the front of the raft and to simply enjoy a fun rapid that was coming up, and then proceeded to plow the raft in to a giant standing wave that completely drenched everyone on board, was one of the great highlights of our trip. The squeals and screams were priceless. All of the guides and the fabulous support crew worked extra hard to christen a new camp site and to make sure that everyone was well taken care of. The food was wonderful and the stories were entertaining. We are already scouting for our next river to conquer!! Thanks Pete!!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "We are frequent flyers with Momentum. We have followed Pete and his expert crew from the rural Illinois river to the Futaleufu in Chile. This years trip was another amazing experience, The 3 day lodge trip on the Rogue provided abundant wildlife and comfortable beds. If you are looking for a raft company in Oregon or Northern Calif. look no further....go with Momentum."
  • Idaho Salmon - Rafting the River of No Return

    "Hands down the best! Quality guides. Good food. Good communication. Just all around professional and competent. Makes for a safe and fun trip."
  • "Just wanted to let you know that we had an AWESOME time on our "Momentum River Expedition"!!! Eric, Ashleen, and Chad were great guides and really made our experience one that we will NEVER forget. They were wonderful with the kids. Tell them that they will all make great parents one day. The food was unbelievable, better than some "fine" restaurants that I have ate at. Camping will never be the same after this trip."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Hey Alan! Thanks for the great experience and thanks for being such a solid guide. I live down here in Sacramento and plan on trying out a trip on the American River soon. It probably won't be as nice as the Upper Klamath, so I'll just have to make do. We will see you next year if all goes as planned. Have a great Summer. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "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! "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "The Rogue was my third trip with Momentum. All three trips were top-rate. Guides are personable, competent, elicit alot of confidence, great cooks and fun personalities. Food is tops; equipment is excellent and the small group sizes are perfect. "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Given the fact that I originally signed up for the Illinois and had to be diverted at the last minute to the Rogue due to water conditions, it was probably a blessing in disguise. The Rogue River trip was awesome! So beautiful at every turn. Even the weather Gods were with us. I now have a new appreciation for rapids ratings (Class I, II, III,etc) and might think twice about booking an extreme adventure. LOL! The expertise of our guides made the journey safe, relaxing, exciting when it should be, and the food was out of this world! This was my first guided float trip and I'll have to say that guides Anthony and Adam are NUMBER ONE!! They worked so hard, were pleasant, entertaining, accommodating, SKILLED, friendly; they truly made my trip a memorable experience. Hey, guys! How about that 9-nine Owyhee trip next spring! Looking forward to it. "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Three members of my family (two adults, one teenager) had a fabulous trip under the able and delightful guidance of Simon. He was brilliant at getting the 7 of us on the raft to negotiate exciting rapids as a paddling team. And we had thrills without spills thanks to his own hard work. The lunch on the riverbank was excellent and the whole day was well arranged from beginning to end. We will do this trip again"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I wanted to thank you and your guides for a fantastic weekend! Adam and Johnny were great, and everyone had a blast. We're already talking about making this a yearly trip for the guys. Thanks very much! -Sean "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Our family has been on several multi-day rafting trips and we were looking for a new adventure. Momentum River Expedition's trip on the Rogue River was recommended by a friend. My husband and I and our sons (in their 20's) enjoyed this opportunity to "choose our own adventure" by paddling individual inflatable kayaks. It was so much fun to learn more about the river and the way the water would move us and then try our hands at paddling our own little boat down the rapids. Each of us came out of our kayak a couple of times in rapids but we were well trained by our guides to self-rescue so we weren't worried about it. Each of the 3 days after an exciting day of paddling we were greeted at camp by one of the guides who had set up our tents, prepped some snacks and had our beverages on ice so all was ready for us to relax around camp. Delicious dinners and breakfasts were served in camp and our lunch picnics on the river were amazing. The guides are very competent on the river and also love telling stories about the history of the area and the surrounding geology."
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "My running trip with Momentum was great! The guides were the perfect amount of responsible, helpful, and fun! I had never run three days in a row before and they were nothing but supportive and confident in my ability, they even helped me with shoe/clothing choices and they adjusted the mornings so we could get started earlier because the first day was too hot for me and it would be cooler if we started running earlier. The food was great too!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Hi Pete, We just finished our trip with your crew yesterday. I had to write to personally thank you for providing one of the best vacations I have ever had :) Arden, Zack, Paige and Anthony could not have been a better fit for our group and they made the trip that much more enjoyable and memorable. They were all infectious with their passion and happiness with being on the river and were so informative with history and stories along the way. I surprised even myself by how sad I was to leave yesterday, a very atypical mood for this "glass half full" kind of gal :) I told my dad today that we need to go back! p.s. the food was outstanding!!! -Dana "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Pete- Thanks for yet another great week of rafting! I'm always impressed with your business and how hard you work to learn and grow and make it better--congratulations! You have put together a special group of people and create some wonderful experiences for the rest of us--thank you. "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We’ve owned a home on the Klamath River for 12 years now. It’s beautiful to watch “Old Man River” go by. But we see people boating the Klamath in rafts and kayaks, and we’ve always wanted to do that ourselves. So when our lawyer/mediator brother suggested he’d pay for a rafting trip on the Upper Klamath, to celebrate his wife's birthday, we jumped on board. There were just four of us on this raft, captained by our unbelievably strong thirty year old guide, Tyler. The long, intense rapids were ominous class threes and fours. Tyler was propped upright, leaning against a 2 by 6 in the back of the raft, wielding two massive oars, and we four terrified neophytes were hunkered down with paddles, two on each side of the boat, in front of him. When Tyler said “paddle,” it meant paddle like hell, because we were approaching or right in the middle of the most violently churning water we’ve ever seen. A lot of our paddling yielded nothing but air, since the boat was forced way up out of the water half the time during a class 4 rapid. But Tyler kept us safe and moving through the water. He had the most muscular upper body we’ve ever seen on a compact frame, and he needed every bit of his strength to push us through those rapids. If we had been able to relax and look around, the scenery would have been breathtaking. But we couldn’t really enjoy it at the time, as we were always tensing for the next rapid or trying to rest leg and foot muscles that we had brutally wedged into the boat to keep from being thrown from the raft into the teaming surf. Three of us actually did fall back into the raft at least once."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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!"
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Took my 8th grade class of 12 students on a 3-day rafting trip of the Lower Klamath. Every aspect of the trip was excellent. The guides were admirable, the food and camping arrangements very well-planned, the equipment of superior quality. I received not one complaint from my group of 14-year-olds - that is a tremendous recommendation!"
