“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 Safari

    "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!"
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "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 "
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "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."
  • "Just wanted to let you know that we had an AWESOME time on our "Momentum River Expedition"!!! Eric, Ashleen, and Chad were great guides and really made our experience one that we will NEVER forget. They were wonderful with the kids. Tell them that they will all make great parents one day. The food was unbelievable, better than some "fine" restaurants that I have ate at. Camping will never be the same after this trip."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I know it’s rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. I have been rafting with many outfitters but they set the standard. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. We had an amazing trip..."
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "I just wanted to thank you again for the great Illinois trip a few weeks ago, it was definitely one of the best multi-day trips I have ever been on and, as usual, the attention to detail that you and your guides adhere to is astounding and very much appreciated"
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Huge thanks to YOU, Orea, and to Jane, for a fabulous trip. It was such a success with the kids, as you know, and you were so adept and friendly in relating to them. This is our last full day in Brookings -- we've been to the Pacific at Harris Beach park, and also on a walk through the redwoods at Jedediah Smith park. Today is overcast and cool, so we're exploring other play options. We're so glad we had the opportunity to raft with you!"
  • 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."
  • Rogue High Adventure Kayaking

    "Thank you, Jane! Ron is totally hooked now! Of course I already was. Unbelievable great trip and such a pleasure spending time with you. We are on our way to Klamath wilderness canoe trail to try out our kayaks. When we get Ron's schedule we will work on setting up that Upper Klamath! Meanwhile, we are going to "keep on paddling!""
  • Rogue High Adventure Kayaking

    "thanks orea! we are already talking about the next trip!! you and your crew were awesome!!"
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "I and six of my friends in our mid 20s did a 4 day trip with Momentum (three days on the Cal Salmon and one day on Clear Creek). I could not speak more highly of this outfitter: guides were friendly and knew what they were doing, food was spot on, and the place was incredible. Highly recommend."
  • Lower Owyhee

    "We had a great time also. We were very impressed with your rafting and cooking skills. We will be doing a trip advisor in the next couple of days- it will be great, of course."
  • Lower Owyhee

    "It was a glorious trip. The scenery was as fantastic as we had anticipated and the weather even cooperated. The tents were easy, the pads cushy, the splash jackets perfect and the food terrific. But the contribution that you guides made to the enjoyment of the trip was immeasurable!"
