  • 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 "

  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Hi Momentum crew, Ah...thanks for all the kind words and thoughts! How nice.....but truly the thanks go to all of you... Ann and I were hiking last night and she mentioned writing to you now that we were back from Almanor, but you beat us to it. So from the bottom of our hearts, and no doubt these words are echoed by all, many many thanks for a great trip. You made it works so well and look so easy - something that is a true art. We had so much fun. It was peaceful and relaxing and beautiful and exciting all wrapped up into a wonderful time. We missed mom and dad terribly, but certainly they were there with us in spirit. As the reigning queen of the 'Oreo cookie drip down the face', I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to share the wonderful Rogue River with all of you! Have a great rest of the season. Our very best...till next time! Xoxoxoxo Nancy "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Hi Alex, Thank you for giving us a fantastic experience!! Our family had a blast and we're ready to book our next rafting trip for August. Jacob is still talking about his "surfing" time. You are absolutley correct, it was a gorgeous day. The kids at the school will definitley have a great time. Have a great day~ Lisa "

    "Momentum is the best! Arden, Orea and Tyler are amazing. Thank you for a memorable and perfect trip!"
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Dear Momentum, I recently completed a 3 day kayak trip on the Lower Klamath. I'd like to give a big shout out to our trip leader, Erik. A consummate professional, hardworking and with tremendous patience to boot. At the end of the trip, an 'outdoor challenged' individual like myself who had to be rescued multiple times was truly convinced that Erik could get me out of any sticky situation on a river run with his tremendous skills. A great asset for Momentum - and a personal thanks from me."
  • Middle Owyhee

    "I had a great time on the Owyhee last month. It is a beautiful river, sometimes exciting, sometimes tranquil, and always desolate(isn't that part of what it makes it so beautiful?!) I wanted to write to you to tell you how impressed I was with the professionalism and talent of the three guides on the trip, Rachel, Anthony, and Alan. They were all fine cooks. They are incredibly nice people, with unlimited patience, superb social and leadership skills. Most importantly, their skills, experience, and knowledge on the river were outstanding, giving me confidence and eliminating concern for four fun filled days in Sunny Eastern Oregon! "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "We met our 2 adult children in Oregon for a family reunion and spent 4 days rafting the Rogue River with Momentum River Expeditions. What an incredible trip! Our guides were unbelievable—knowledgeable, professional, skilled and so fun to be around. We consider ourselves a little bit “foodies” and were so impressed with the food! They took into account food preferences and every day we were amazed at the choices and how delicious it all was---we felt very spoiled. The campsites were spectacular and beautiful, waking up each morning to magnificent views of the river. We were also impressed with the side day hikes, to waterfalls, Zane Grey’s cabin, and more, all unexpected and unforgettable. Our guide took into account ability levels so we all 4 were able to do as much (or as little) as we wanted. Our family decided it was one of our best trips ever and gave us much to think about and remember."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "We had such an awesome time! The girls voted it "best trip ever" (except for their colds) and you all had everything to do with that. And just so you know, you had some pretty stiff competition that includes trips to Alaska, Vienna, Paris and New York...Thanks for doing what you're doing. The trip met every expectation and more. Take care and we hope we see you again next year! Laurie and Nancy"
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "The Scott ascended into the top 10 rivers that I have had the previledge of experiencing over the last 40 years. I certainly understand why it is one of your favorite's. We believe that you are one of the most talented guides we have worked with, and would look forward to enjoying any river with you. We certainly do want to come back for the Cal Salmon soon. Thank you for a great run. Kim "
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "Pete, If I had to pick one word to describe our trip down the Illinois River last week (with Mike and Mara), the subject line of this email would be it. I knew going in that it was likely to be a good trip, and that we would have fun. I didn't realize that it would be one of (if not THE) best trip/vacation/experience we've ever had. Mike and Mara were nothing short of phenomenal. They were friendly, great guides (Mara's safety instructions would later come in handy to me when I became a member of the Illinois Swim Team), good cooks and now - counted amongst our friends. Mara went above and beyond to make sure our anniversary was celebrated (seriously - a private romantic dinner for two at the Klondike Creek camp? how awesome is that?!), Mike kept all of our gear dry and intact and both kept us safe and wholly entertained. I can say for certain that Ann and I *WILL* be back to run more rivers with your company - and we really hope to cross paths with Mike and Mara again in the future. Ann actually cried as they drove off after dropping us off. We miss them. (Feel free to share this with them, even if it will inflate Mike's ego ;-) ) On a scale of 1-10 we're rating this a perfect 10. We've never done that before. Thanks again for an amazing run down the gorgeous Illinois - it was one experience I know I won't forget. Oh - and Tell Mike and Mara we miss them! -John"
  • Lower Owyhee Kayak Expedition

    "Inflatable Kayak trip on Owyhee River. Aside from the incredible beauty that earns this river the nickname "Grand Canyon of Oregon", with added attractions of hotsprings and petroglyphs, I was super impressed with the guides attention to my food allergies. Every meal had gluten free and dairy free selections. I know it is a pain in the rear to plan special food for remote trips. The food was great at all times. Lots of wildlife. Oh yeah, the whitewater was fun too."
  • Clear Creek Kayaking

    "Tyler, We had an awesome time! And have definitely enjoyed telling stories to our friends since we have been back. Loved seeing you again and meeting James and Craig. And I LOVE the humus. I thing we want a "do over"! Now we understand more. Lol. Anyway, thanks for everything you all do. See ya again in a couple years!"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Alan, We had a great time as well---we're still talking about it!! We are thinking about a guided lodge trip on the lower Rogue sometime in August, and we will definitely call Momentum. We would love it if we were lucky enough to get you as our guide again!! You really made our trip on the Klamath very comforting; we were all very impressed with your river knowledge and rowing skills. Have a great summer, and have fun on your river trips! :) Brenda "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Thanks Alan. You were a wonderful Guide. The boys really had a great time. Also, please be sure to tell whomever it is that needs to know, that Rachel was fantastic as well. As the front line contact, she made all the difference in the world in my choosing Momentum instead of another company. And, your services made it clear that I will always seek to book through Momentum rather than any competitor. In fact, when my nephews and I were discussing the probability of making it a yearly event, they insisted that we try to use the same company! Feel free to pass my comments along and even use them in advertising (without my last name) if it would be helpful."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Thank you. It was by far the best expedition I've been on. Hope to get back up here next spring for some more fun. Thanks again. -Andrew "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Erik, Owen and I had a blast on the river - Owen can't stop talking about it - we are at his sister and brother-in-law's right now and every other conversation brings us back to the rafting experiences. Thanks you so much for being such a terrific guide - we are already talking about coming back next year to do the river again and perhaps taking in a show. Great job!!! Yvonne and Owen "
