“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 –

  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Kudos to Team Momentum. Masters of whitewater, cuisine and logistics. We had a terrific time and look forward to future trips."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "This has to have been the best trip ever! I have been on guided hunting trips, climbs and rafting trips and nothing compares with Momentum. Our guide Tyler was very skilled and instilled confidence in his paddlers. He did not skirt around any white water, we hit it all. And he is an excellent bar tender and cook as well, along with Pete the owner. The camp, the food the equipment and the white water were everything one could hope for. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience. Hope to see you soon. -Ron"
  • DeRiemer Adventure Kayaking Trips

    "In July 2018, my best friend and I joined Momentum and the DeRiemers for a 6 day, 5 night raft supported kayak trip down the Main Salmon River. It was our first time paddling western whitewater and we couldn't have asked for a better introduction! The Momentum Guides and DeRiemer Instructors are top-notch. All were highly skilled on the river and very warm and welcoming. The Momentum guides did an excellent job of setting up comfy camps each night and their cooking can't be beat- seriously, the food was outstanding! An extra thank you to Andy for patiently showing me the basics of fly fishing, it was my first time trying it and a highlight of the trip for me. Rafters and hard boaters, if you are looking to get away from it all without having to deal with the often challenging backcountry logistics this is the way to go. Thank you all for a great week in Idaho!"
