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!”

  • 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.” "
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "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."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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 :) "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Mara!! We had a wonderful time rafting with you! The excitement of the whitewater, the team effort, and the amazing beauty along the river was unparalleled. And we appreciated your friendly personality as well. Oh by the way, I remember telling you about an environmental activist by the name Derrick Jensen. I thought you might find his work interesting. You should look him up! The last book I read was "Strangely Like War: The Global Assault on Forests". Really good book. Anyway, we hope to go rafting again soon; the Illinois River trip sounds great! Take care :) ~ Linda L.P. ("Shakuntala") "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Pete, We had the 2 day trip this past Friday and Sat. Just wanted to thank you so much for the service that we received. I know everyone had a great time and your guides were outstanding. I personally had Kelly as my guide and he was great! He hands down was the best guide that I had ever had and I had been whitewater rafting many times! Again, the service that you provided was outstanding and I appreciate everything that your company did and stands for. Thanks again for everything and we will talk to you soon. God Bless. Kevin (Also feel free to use this email on your website to help promote your company) "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "we had a great time! We will for sure be going again and will ask for you! Take care"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Mike, You were the best. Our next trip will be with you - the sooner the better. Cheers! Sheri"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This was my 5th white water experience and by far the best. The rapids were big but the guide (Anthony) did a great job making us feel comfortable with them. I would love to book another trip with them!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We had a great time. Lot's of good memories and stories to tell. Can't say enough about your extra effort to make it a real adventure. Thank you for a job well done. My kids and I have already been discussing another rafting trip with you. -Hank"
  • Lower Owyhee

    "We are home at last from our trip through Eastern Oregon, and have had a lot of time to reflect on the Owyhee trip. We want you to know that the most outstanding aspect of you three was your professionalism as river guides and as group leaders. From the cold, snowy first day, to the take-out along-side the "gang from Caldwell", you always exhibited the demeanor of people who understand how to deal with difficulty with a successful outcome for all. You were able to blend knowing just- what- needed -to -happen with a smile and some light-hearted banter. We had complete trust in your skills and abilities which built during the experiences of the trip (including pulling me and my hat from the river). On the lighter side, you were awfully nice, interesting, and funny (especially Mike) and tolerated our middle aged/old age conversations and questions without a hint of boredom. Thanks for humoring us. You made us feel like we were a "special group" and in some way unique (which we really weren't). For Jim and me, you pointed out super camp-sites and engaged us in interesting conversations. Each of you gave us a picture of your background that we found very interesting (since our kids are in their late 20's). You also displayed a depth of knowledge about the geographic area, geology, knew the flora, fauna, history, and environmental concerns, which in our case, was a big part of the trip. It was nice to share the experience with people who were even more impressed by it that we were. We learned a lot from each of you. You were more than safe guides, you were also resources for a lot of information. AND you are great cooks. The meals were better than home. The care the company takes with the environment, from the carbon off-sets, to the local/organic food, and then compost/waste handling topped off our experience. We are pretty conscientious at home, and so were impressed as well as pleased that you can run an operation with glamour AND keep the "footprint" somewhat smaller. We appreciated the good equipment too...especially those thick pads. So, did we like the trip? YES. We have some friends that we think might also enjoy it, and can't wait to show them our pictures. Maybe we'll try Clear Creek, or the Klamath next year. Good luck with your summer, and fall plans, and with the whole enterprise. -Caroline "
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "This is a review of the running trip along the rogue river trail. The camp support was wonderful, tents and pads were all set up and comfy. The food was fantastic.A big thanks to Orea, Anthony, Jace, Ghelfi, and Jenn. We had plenty of support while running, and we had so much fun with our fellow runners and guides once we got to camp. I would recommend Momentum Running Trips to anyone interested in some fun and beautiful scenery (with great guides). An extra excellent for the food!"
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "You guys are awesome! Let's do the 50k!!! I'll look up the dates. Thank you for your inspiration and leadership on the trail. I had a great time. Could not ask for more. "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "In a 4-star rating system, Momentum gets 5++++++! Our guide, Simon, was wonderful, gave us clear instructions (so important for beginners), and provided us with a memorable and exciting experience. Thank you, Momentum, for introducing us to the Rogue and rafting!"
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "I had an amazing three days on the Cal Salmon and Scott. The service, the food, and the friendships were all wonderful. And the rivers, the rivers were spectacular! I especially loved "airplane" rapid on the Salmon. Thank you so much. "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Thanks Erik. The feeling is mutual. Great job of guiding. It was obvious that our group had the best and most aggressive guide Larry "
  • Lower Owyhee

    "Hi Orea, YOU were great, as was the whole team. We were talking about your expertise in the kitchen and at the oars. The cushion surf on the prow of Whistling Bird, in combination with the stuffed French toast and the Mole Oatmeal with Chorizo and Poached Eggs, what a combination. You were wonderful. To Lorenzo and his tremendous skill at everything he does, Ben's amazing attention to detail, and gift for teaching, Keith's Sherpa kayak skills, combined with his amazing generosity and humanity, and to my man Andy, who set my tent up at every camp, worked every moment of the trip, and solo boated everything to secure our camp each day, thank you all for a great time. I look forward to my next Momentum trip."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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 "
