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 1/2 Day

    "Hi Rachael: We had such a good time rafting with you. Even Laura had to admit that it was more fun than scary. Perhaps we can get her on another river next year. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "We just wanted to thank you and your staff for a wonderful trip. This was our first rafting experience and we are definitely hooked. We will be back next year. Everyone was great, especially our guide, Alan. He was a pleasure to talk with and his knowledge of the area and confidence on the river made us feel very safe. Everything was professional and well organized and the food was great. Also, thank you to everyone for the anniversary cupcakes. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. You all helped make our anniversary celebration a very special one and one we will never forget"

  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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 for such a great trip and experience. We wouldn't have asked/ expected for any thing more. Anthony, Glenn and Mike all were great company , extremely helpful and excellent guides. Food was very good and particularly for us, who are 100 % lacto vegetarian , we had plenty of choices. Only one suggestion, please put in your required list for the people to get watershoes/rivershoes of good quality ( which we didn't have :(, we bought the cheap one !), so hike to Ukonom Falls was little tough ). "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "We spent 4 days (rafting), 3 nights (camping) on the Rogue River on big rafts + inflatable kayaks. It was a phenomenal trip—our guides were skilled river navigators and kayak instructors, made camp for us every night, and cooked phenomenal (and I am very a discerning eater) meals at every opportunity. It was a lovely respite from everyday life, beautiful, rejuvenating. Our guides, Jane, Tyler, and Anthony, were professional and calm (and funny and interesting). I would recommend Momentum to anyone. We were lucky to have chosen them for this good family trip (mom + 2 sons, 28 + 26). It might just have been a perfect trip."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Fun company and camping, wonderful and imaginative food, thrilling and fearless rapids, tremendous wildlife viewing! We got it all with Momentum's guides Orea and Sam, and boatman Geoff on our recent 4-day Rogue Wilderness float. Thanks!!"
  • Idaho Salmon - Rafting the River of No Return

    "Rebecca, You were fantastic! We had such a great time! It was thrilling and beautiful and fun! It was very enjoyable talking with you and hearing a bit about your interesting life! Thanks for sharing it with us and for doing such a great job! -Jack and Alex"
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "Pete Walstrom, the owner of Momentum River Expeditions, puts his years of experience and expertise into the management of 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. I especially would like to recommend the Cal Salmon trip and the Illinois River trip. The Illinois is one of the most incredible canyons I have ever seen, let alone rafted on. The combination of lush flora, thundering rapids, and isolation make it nearly indescribable."
  • Rogue High Adventure Kayaking

    "thanks orea! we are already talking about the next trip!! you and your crew were awesome!!"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I was one of the 11+ people on the Austin Adventure 2008 and had a wonderful time. The guides were so kind, friendly, experienced and also great cooks, that I let any anxiety go right away. The equipment saved us from freezing on the second day of the trip, so thank you for that too! And we adored Millhouse! Hope to see you again next year! Lyra and Peter Josefsson"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "We had so much fun and are still talking about it! You are a lively river guide and we loved that we felt safe yet challenged! If we dont make it to one of those lovely rivers next Spring, rest assured, we will be planning our 50th Birthdays there! (closer than you think)."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hello Alan - thank you so much - truly the rafting was the high point of our trip. I will be recommending you, Momentum, and the Upper Klamath to everyone I know! Joel "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "We thank you! The boys really enjoyed their trip and are eager to return, maybe next summer. I would like to commend you for all the little games, practice runs of what to do in case someone falls overboard, how to get back in the raft and how to float in case you don't get back in immediately. What an ingenious idea! Wish I would have been so wise when I took my friend out on our maiden rafting voyage on the Sandy, could have saved myself raft puncture repair costs. Oh well, I wouldn't have had the same memories. Again, I thank you for the great trip and will recommend you to anyone considering a rafting trip on the Rogue. You are a delight! "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Thank YOU both -- and Pete -- for a fantastic trip. I'm sending a family your way in August... they have a younger daughter, so may need to opt for the Klamath trip, but keep an eye out for the Baldwin family for us :) "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "We did the 1 day upper Klamath white water tour with Craig and Nick. Craig was our guide and he did a great job! They were right on time to meet us and our day went off without a hitch. We didn't have to do a thing (ok, occasionally we had to paddle) but everything else is taken care of by the guys. Our 2 teenagers had a great time and we were all plenty soaked by the time we were done. The shore lunch was fantastic, lots of fresh veggies, great makings for sandwiches. Lots of winding hills on the way up and back but we got to see a lot of scenery away from Ashland which was fantastic. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone, go and enjoy with confidence!!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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!!!"
