  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!" For those who have not been on a rafting trip with us below are some highlights and then a rolling list of testimonials as they come in from our guests. You can also check out TripAdvisor.com and Yelp.com for even more. Enjoy!

  • "Trip was great- Alan,Simon and Faye were excellent! Have not been on the river since my college kayaking days but I am now excited to get back out. Will definitely pass along your outfit and recommend! -Mark"
  • "This was the 4th or 5th trip on the Upper Klamath with Momentum, and all have been fantastic. Jane, our guide, was excellent, keeping us safe but at the same time hitting all the big holes and waves to our enjoyment. Everyone in the company was excellent-this is a must do trip if you are ever in the area!!"
  • "A big thank you to the staff at Momentum for such a fun trip down the Upper Klamath yesterday! I can't think of a better way to have spent my birthday. :) Chad was our raft guide, and both Mike and I were impressed with his knowledge of the area. Discussing Captain Jack and the Modoc War was refreshing, although I was unclear on some details, forgetting several points. Chad knew the basics, but upon arriving home I couldn't help but do some googling and refresh my history. Please pass the following on to him as well so we can ALL get our facts right for future reference. Thanks so much! :) Once again, thanks Chad for such a fun afternoon! :)"
  • "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!"
  • "We had the fantastic family expience of rafthing the Upper Klamath with the Momentum Company and cannot believe how truly skilled, experienced, and absolutely wonderful the experience was for all 16 of us. We've rafted quite a few times in the past and this was better than all the others put together. Our guides were so fun and knowledgeable. Impossible to top this!"
  • "My husband and I went white-water rafting for the first time. We did the full day rafting on the Klamath. Momenturm made it a great experience! From the time they picked us up at our hotel in Ashland until we returned we were in capable hands. We were a little nervous at first, but with Jane's guidance and great skill we were soon comfortable and totally enjoying the river. Food was great also."
  • "Thank you for the amazing day down the Upper Klamath!! The scenery was beautiful, the animals were a treat, the rapids were exhilarating, the food was fabulous, and you were an amazing guide!! I felt completely safe with you as our guide. I would definitely take another Momentum trip again. -Terri "
  • "Simon, Now that we are back in the UK, I wanted to say thank you for making our one-day trip down the Upper Klamath a highlight of our stay in the USA. My wife, our 14-year-old son and I, all enjoyed it immensely. Firstly, it's a great river with dramatic sections, stunning scenery and lots of wildlife; there is also a good flow even in August: I still find it hard to believe that in the calm sections between the rapids the river visibly slopes downhill. Secondly your organisation is very professional, but also personal, with pre-trip confirmatory e-mails and a pickup from our campsite that was bang on time. But most importantly, more than an experienced guide and an excellent raft-Captain, your knowledge of the area and enthusiasm for the experience was infectious and added hugely to the overall enjoyment. This was, as billed, an exhilarating wilderness experience not a theme park ride which we will all remember for many years to come. Thanks again to you and all at Momentum. And thanks for finding such good companion rafters too. Best wishes, John"
  • "We're happy to report that we have never enjoyed a river trip as much as we did this one. The guides were personable, knowledgable and really laid out a wonderful lunch at the side of the river complete with a local character named Rodrigo the squirrel. We felt safe even though there were many challenging rapids and we'd do this again in a heart beat. Thanks!!!"
  • "Fabulous river adventure in class 3 and 4 rapids. Great food, great guides, we loved Tyler and felt safe with him. It was a great experience of a lifetime. Worth every penny, and then some. What a rush! Go Momentum!"
  • "Hi Pete- We had an amazing time, and next time I am up there this year I will definitely do another trip with you. -Becca "
  • "Rafting the Upper Klamath was a great experience and thank you Mike for guiding us through it safely. I would like to call Momentum River Expeditions again when I return to Oregon in the near future. -Ed"
  • "Just want to let y'all know that our guides on thurs, Eric and Allen were fabulous. They were professional, informative, fun loving and safe. We had a wonderful time and would recommend your company to anyone that asks. -Claudia and Greg"
  • "Four of us decided to go with Momentum River Expeditions because of these outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed! Anthony and Tyler, our river guides were professional, courteous, very experienced and super fun! They'll be telling us fun stories and history of the river when the water is calm, and safely guided us even with our eyes closed (literally!) through the ups and downs of whitewater splashes. Breakfast and lunch was prep with fresh and quality ingredients... Lox, bagels, marionberry creamcheese (yum!), French press coffee and juice for breakfast. Fresh multigrain loafs, cold cuts, avocados, assorted veggies, carved fruits, and a big bowl of peppercinis! At the end of our whole day fun, we also have fresh, cold, juicy watermelons to end our trip (while other outfitters had none!). Sign up with them, you won't be disappointed!"
  • "We had rafted the Upper Klamath 15 yrs ago with another company. We wanted to give the experience to our grandsons, ages 13 and 15. We explained our concern about the younger boy's Autism, with Erik as our guide we quickly saw we had no worries. He is outstanding! He not only kept us safe, his knowledge of the history, wildlife and geology of the area was impressive. Everyone on the staff was friendly and courteous. The food was great. We hope to do it again!"
  • "Hi Erik! The rafting on the Klamath was THE HIGHLIGHT of this entire trip for me. Thanks for a wonderful experience. I learned a lot! -Chris"
  • "Thanks again Anthony, you are the best! It was a perfect day! Thank-you, Denise"
  • "We booked a last minute day trip while vacationing in Oregon. Momentum was the only outfitter I was able to find that had a trip going out the following day (our only available day). We had a very knowledgeable guide (Jane) and driver (Anthony) who made the entire trip relaxing, safe, fun...a blast. My husband has had some bad experiences on the water, and I was concerned that he might be uncomfortable, but our guide's confident and laid back leadership style had him (and me) at ease."
  • "Our group has not stopped talking all week as to what a wonderful time we had on the river. There is already talk of putting together a trip for next summer. Can't wait!!! Marty and I had an awesome time. See you next year!! -Shannon "
  • "Thank YOU, Erik! You helped to make our day trip one that we'll all remember for the rest of our lives! We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the area and the power of the water---and had the most magnificent time running the rapids!!! Thank you again for all your hard work!!! We will gladly recommend you and the company for anyone who asks!!! Mahalo and Aloha!!!!"
