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

    "Greatest trip of my life...The kayaking in white water was outstanding. Can't say enough about our guides (Anthony, Tyler, and Cooper). I would trust them on any future trip. They had it all together: best food including presentation, meeting our every need, and showing continual concern for our safety. This trip was a gift from my son. I would love to go on future trips. Would love to recommend this activity to anyone with questions. I am 71 yrs old and could never have succeeded in kayaking without the help of the guides and the other eight men on the trip. "
  • Middle Owyhee

    "Pete: Just had to let you know that Rachel Ward is probably the best raft guide that I have ever rafted with. (and I’ve done some major rivers) We were all fairly terrified of the Middle Owyhee, especially in the beginning, and she kept us safe, well fed, and happy. Jason and Adam were great too. Thanks for employing such a world class veteran. Please give her a bonus. Nancy"
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "Tyler, Craig, Ryan and Mike, What an incredible adventure! I truly appreciate how hard your team worked to ensure that our group had an amazing time, and we absolutely did. The trail running was awesome and not only were Mike and Ryan there every step of the way (literally) to ensure we made it to our next destination safely, they were a whole lot of fun to run with. Impressive ultra runners and truly great guys. The river team (Tyler and Craig) was equally impressive. With a boat waiting in case we opted not to run, camp ready when we arrived, and plenty of exceptionally delicious food to enjoy (vegans did not miss out!!) I loved how your team worked together to make the experience fun and memorable. I can't stress enough how much we appreciate your dedication to creating a great trip for the whole group (with very diverse needs) and your attention to every detail. Our Rogue River running trip did not disappoint. The river was gorgeous, the trail challenging, the company (Momentum) exceptional, and a snake ate a fish. I have nothing but rave reviews. Many many thank yous."
  • 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 Safari

    "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, We appreciate you ordering the perfect weather for this Illi trip. It is a wonderful river that I would absolutely do again. We enjoyed your great skills as a group leader and guide. You run a top notch company and should take great pride in doing things the right way. I have been paddling for over 40 years and can honestly say that I would experience any river anywhere with you. We look forward to enjoying another river with you soon. Thank you for a great time on the Illi. Kim"
  • "Right on guys! We loved the trip too. Such a privilege to learn from all of you. Your team, each of you, have incredible talent and passion for the river. One thing we teach at Lifeschool is to find what you love, and do it. You all role model that so well to the kids. Thanks again for an awesome trip. "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Couldn't have asked for anything better. Our guides knew the river like the back of their hand, with over 40yrs collective experience as guides. They knew all the fun "secret spots" and their easy-going, fun-focused manner made for a memorable and safe trip. We're already planning another trip for next summer."
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "Thank you guys very much for everything. Thank you for your attention to detail and for being so accommodating. This is my first guided trip and you guys set the bar very very high! I loved being able to run with such great runners that I look up to. Thank you all for letting me pick your brains during our runs, I'll definitely use your advice. I wish I was still on the trail!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Eric , once again thank you for showing all of us a great time on the river . You and all the guides made this a memory we will all cherish. Cheers Josh"
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Hello, Pete! I just wanted to let you know what an amazing weekend we had on the Salmon. I'd also like to thank Anthony, Rachel and Derek for being such amazing hosts to us. We were blown away by the hospitality. Not only are they extremely professional on the river but great people to be around in camp! I could not think of better people to show us such an amazingly good time than those three. Please send our regards and well wishes for the future to all to them! I will definitely be recommending Momentum to anyone I know that will be rafting in California and Oregon. Thanks again! "
  • Middle Owyhee

    "Thanks for such a fabulous trip. Food awesome! River technique fabulous to watch! "
  • 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!"

    "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

    "We are a family with 5 sons, ages 23-9, and we went on the 3 day lodge to lodge trip. The older boys, all very athletic, have never been so happy with a family trip-kayaking, rafting, swimming, and eating! The younger boys were challenged but safe using the kayaks and rafts. They got to see bears, eagles, turtles, etc. Mom and dad now feel 20 years younger. The guides, Erik, Robin, and Simon, were professional, experienced, and fun. We felt very safe in such capable hands. Excellent trip! Only two drawbacks...you might gain weight with all the good food, and you can't stay forever. "
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Hi Alan, We thoroughly enjoyed our rafting expedition with you, Alan. You were a superb guide - especially in the area of safety. It was especially nice to hear your stories about what it was like growing up on the river - your summers with your grandparents - how the river and the quiet and solitude of the area drew you back to your roots. When Daniel and I are next in the area we will be sure to book another tour with Momentum and you can rest assured that we will specifically ask for you to be our guide. "
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Thanks for organizing a fantastic trip on the Klamath. The guides Anthony, Sam and Craig were great. I really enjoyed the SUP and I am glad you had one available. I definitely want to do the Cal Salmon next year."
  • Middle Owyhee

    "Your excursion was awesome, the food unbelievable (didn’t expect anything that great on a raft trip) and the guides were super. I’ve never seen five people work so hard and make it look so effortless. They really treated us like royalty. Trying to put together a trip with my family for next May. Will definitely call on Momentum…..special request for Anthony. Thanks for the memories!!! "
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Hello lovely people! Jack and i loved our adventure and have already told folks your trips are a must, esp living in Ashland. We are going to hope to join you on your 2011 Wild and Scenic Rogue trip. I was quite scared on the drive down, but not once - not even one time did I feel scared in the water. We were having so much fun that I couldn't stop laughing out loud every time we went through a rapid... all thanks to your guides' emphasis on safety, their skill set and knowledge base. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you and your experience reading the water. Also, the food was dreamy; healthy, organic energy food made us all happy :) Thank you so much - we will be back! (I even got to see my first bear in the wild on the trip home - this cute as can be little bear cub was clinging with all fours to a tree trunk along the road.) "
