  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Hi Erik, Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip! We were so impressed with all of the guides and we liked that everyone was very efficient and professional, while each having a fun and unique personality. Every part of the trip was so unique and we totally fell in love with the area. I haven't had that much fun in a long time! Phillip and I are hoping to make it up there to do one of the one day trips as well. I also have to thank you and the whole company for being so careful with our gluten allergy. After the first meal, seeing how careful you all were, I was able to relax and enjoy mealtime--which is usually something I can only do in my own home. That made the entire trip even better. Overall, I could not have been more happy with how everything went and we will definitely be adding rafting to our list of favorite activities! Thank you! -Tiffany"

  • "Hey, Thanks to all for a great trip for our family. We took a 4 day, 3 night trip on the Lower Klamath. We all loved the trip and the kids are still raving about it. Rachael, Adam and Anthony were great guides and their skill, patience and expertise made us feel 100% confident in every aspect of the trip. The food was great.! "

    "Hi Jane, Many sincere thanks to you from all of us. We had such an amazing time. I so greatly appreciate the care and integrity with which you, Simon and Taylor shepherded us down the river. We always felt safe and inspired. As a parent it was especially rewarding to see the confidence build in our kids. Were it not for such professional attention they would not have been nearly as bold as they were. Again, thank you so much. "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Nine member of my family ages 13-73 had the most fantastic trip. Guides so professional, food outstanding, scenery unsurpassed, every need supplied. The option of having kayaks as well as having rafts gave adventure to all ages. Camping for 3 nights and rafting 4 days was the best. "

    "Great spring trip with excellent Momentum staff of Anthony, Simon and Fay. Professional, safe, experienced, attentive and personable. Well run and reliable company that is in this business for the "long paddle". Would recommended it to anyone and will be coming back. "

    "Hey Pete, I just wanted to thank you, and the Momentum staff, for an amazing trip last weekend. I’m still trying to get over how completely beautiful a river the California Salmon truly is – it definitely deepened my love of whitewater rafting. You know it’s been an incredible trip when you’re already planning your next one on the way home. I think you may have created a monster. Thanks a lot, Pete!! ;-) You were an excellent guide, host, and hiking partner. Your knowledge, patience, passion for what you do, and good sense of humor made my trip an experience I’ll never forget. I’m already looking forward to my next trip with you and Momentum. Thanks again! All the best, -- Heather Liguore"

    "It was so much fun and we had an AMAZING time! You, John and Tyler were all excellent guides, and took such amazing care of us. I hope you all have a great summer, and we will continue to tell all of our friends and family what a great experience we had."

    "Dear Alan! You are one of the precious memories of a wonderful weekend with Momentum River Expeditions! Thank you for the special fun you and only you could create with our raft by having us "ride the bull" and . . . will I ever forget the Circle of Trust we six created?!#@? That was the Bestest!!! You are the Bestest! I had such a great time, and I've been "blabbing" away with friends at how an otherwise could-have-been-crappy weekend was instead extraordinary for me! Thank you for being YOU, Alan! Hugs--at LEAST three ;-))))))))) Pam"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We’ve owned a home on the Klamath River for 12 years now. It’s beautiful to watch “Old Man River” go by. But we see people boating the Klamath in rafts and kayaks, and we’ve always wanted to do that ourselves. So when our lawyer/mediator brother suggested he’d pay for a rafting trip on the Upper Klamath, to celebrate his wife's birthday, we jumped on board. There were just four of us on this raft, captained by our unbelievably strong thirty year old guide, Tyler. The long, intense rapids were ominous class threes and fours. Tyler was propped upright, leaning against a 2 by 6 in the back of the raft, wielding two massive oars, and we four terrified neophytes were hunkered down with paddles, two on each side of the boat, in front of him. When Tyler said “paddle,” it meant paddle like hell, because we were approaching or right in the middle of the most violently churning water we’ve ever seen. A lot of our paddling yielded nothing but air, since the boat was forced way up out of the water half the time during a class 4 rapid. But Tyler kept us safe and moving through the water. He had the most muscular upper body we’ve ever seen on a compact frame, and he needed every bit of his strength to push us through those rapids. If we had been able to relax and look around, the scenery would have been breathtaking. But we couldn’t really enjoy it at the time, as we were always tensing for the next rapid or trying to rest leg and foot muscles that we had brutally wedged into the boat to keep from being thrown from the raft into the teaming surf. Three of us actually did fall back into the raft at least once."

  • Rogue River Rafting

    "I had an amazing time on the Rogue River with my family. My guides were so awesome. Are guides and the beauty set this trip apart from any other I have been on. Arden, Robin and my dude Tyler made this trip all around dope! Food was amazing, Equipment top notch, and the knowledge of our leaders made this River trip something that will never be forgotten. Momentum is definitely the Movement and I have already recommended to many friends. I plan on doing at least one river trip with this group every year for the duration of my life. If your reading this do yourself a favor and book yourself a trip. The Rogue was in amazing form when I was on it. This company gets all Love from me!"

    "Anthony, I had a fabulous time on this trip, and we will definitely be back! Thanks again for being such a wonderful guide...and cook! I realize how much work you guides all put into these trips...please know that everyone recognizes this...and appreciates all you do. Have a great summer, Anne "

    "From the pre-trip checklist, to arrival at camp, every spot along the river, and until I left camp, Momentum made my trip a memorable experience. This was my third river-rafting trip and nothing compares to my experience on the Salmon. First rate guides made the experience memorable by being very personable, sharing their rafting and local knowledge, as well as ensuring a safe trip through some insane rapids. I didn't realize how intense the rapids were until I saw the pictures of me under many 3 foot walls of water."

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

    "Awesome trip- the best and most consistent whitewater we have run since the Apurimac in Peru. Couldn't ask for better guides- everyone was really friendly, helpful and very safety-conscious. And the food... and the wine-tasting...YUM!"

    "thanks man. Good times : )"

    "Fellas, Ironically, after rushing off the river and to the airport, my monday evening flight was cancelled. That said, after staring down the haystack of The White House at 2650 cfs I’m fully satisfied to have tackled some class V and made it home without being thrown from the boat. And since Eric nearly fell out of the boat twice, it’s probably for the best... I didn’t want to save him a 3rd time. He just head-butted the water one too many times. As you say... you can’t control the river, but you can control the food. I have to tell you again what a great job you guys did with the meals. In Los Angeles, I get plenty of noteworthy meals at the finest five star restaurants. The produce and local fare, and the taste and quality of everything you served was fantastic. You were accommodating to special requests, and had plenty of options (and quantity) for all. I’m very impressed and would highly recommend the trip to anyone. It’s still a shame we couldn’t hit the Cal-Salmon but hopefully the next time cooperates. And after the great time we all had, it’s very likely there will be a next time with you guys. Thanks again for guiding us through your beautiful northern Cali locale, and please... Everyone... Practice your bocce ball skills before we show up again. Z "
