Rogue River Stand Up Paddling Testimonials

  • "It far exceeded my expectations, I don't think I can ever take another river trip with another company. You made Zach's 40th celebration absolutely amazing... blew all expectations out of the water. Will definitely return again!"
  • "We had an amazing trip down the Main Salmon River with Momentum. We had my Dad's 80th birthday on the river, grandkids, aunts, uncles.....ages 14 to 80 and everyone had a BLAST! The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and cooked great meals. Arriving to camp and having everything set up for you was a pleasure. I have been on many a river trip and they say you are pampered....nothing compared to Momentum! Bar and hors d'oeuvres ready for you as you get off the river, the sun sets and you relax while the guides cook 4-star worthy meals. Sam was a great leader and was able to keep the teens having fun every minute of the trip! Lane, Rick, Derek, Sammie (our kayak guide) Shana, Elsa... everyone was great! Planning another trip next summer with Momentum. (Safari-Style)"
  • "This was one of the best trips I have ever taken in my life. It exceeded my expectations. I absolutely loved how your employees and guides take care of everything and how everything is just so perfectly planned. I love the attention to details. Our guide Mark was phenomenal. He was funny, informative, caring, fun, challenging, and an absolute blast. Although I didn't get to raft with Katy, every time I hung around with her, she was just amazing. I loved every part of this trip. I organized this trip as a guys trip to celebrate my 40th bday and it was absolutely what I was looking for. Thank you for existing. Thank you for your vision. And thank you for helping me have an unforgettable 40th celebration. Best river rafting company in the world! "
  • "You run the best business and hire the best people I have ever been with on the river. Runner up isn’t even close… Great entrepreneurship, customer service, and execution skills are rare, but you have them all going on inside the same shop. (Safari Style Trip)"
  • "The Best – Our family has been on two rafting trips with Momentum, the Klamath and the Rogue, and they were really first rate. The guides are very experienced and great company, the food is excellent, and they make sure you have a wonderful ride without compromising safety in any way. They go the extra mile on everything e.g. providing gluten free food for one of our party, sending out a guide early in the morning to get the best camping sites, playing games with the kids in the evenings and so on. An extra notch above any other rafting company we have been with. Highly recommended."
  • "Momentum Guides & Trips are Amazing – We did a 4 day trip down the Rogue River. The entire adventure was flawless and amazing. The guides are fun smart and provide Ritz Carlton like service in the wilderness– obviously the bathroom situation is a bit tough on us city folk 🙂 You spend each day rafting, kayaking and/or swimming down a very scenic river only to arrive at at a charming campsite. The execution from start to finish is well orchestrated and eases all burdens for the people who have wilderness-deficit."
  • "Flawless! – Couldn’t imagine a better run trip from A-Z. Loved the guides and the vibe surrounding the entire trip. If I’m ever looking to do another trip I will reach out to Momentum to go with them or even for advice on other companies if they don’t run that area…they are just great people."
  • "A huge Thank You!! We absolutely loved the trip and I can truly say that you guys at Momentum are the best guides and crew I’ve ever worked with. And thanks for letting me row! :)!"
  • "This was our 6th trip with Pete and Momentum! The quality of the guides remains stellar! Thank you Rebecca, Jeff and Jane, it was great to be in your company. I have been rafting with my friends for 30 years and Momentum always takes EVERYTHING up a notch. The food is gourmet, in fact no desire to go out to dinner after 6 days on the river because we knew nothing would compare in quality!!"
  • "Never before have I had every expectation met, and, once met, utterly surpassed to the point of obliteration. Maybe someday I’ll get to slide down the gravity well of a black hole. Until then, there’s Momentum… The guides on our trip embodied a quiet confidence and calm competence that was infectious. Never once did I feel endangered, even beneath my kayak in the middle of a rapid– it happens, and I enjoyed the ride… Momentum guides could lead a one-way expedition to Mars, and I’d sign up tomorrow. They also have some great late-night stories– and the night skies have never been so clear to my jaded eyes. The other guests on our trip were equally amazing. Between the guides and the guests, I have never been surrounded by so many kindred spirits. We were all there for a true time-of-our-lives, guides and guests alike. Once our child is barely old enough, we’re absolutely inflicting him on some folks. The brochure proclaims gourmet meals in the wilds of, in our case, Idaho. “Gourmet” does not adequately describe the effort and attention given to these meals. To get off an already amazing day on the river to an already prepared spread of brie and crackers was mind-blowing. Every single meal, breakfast lunch or dinner, was nutritious and deeply soul-satisfying. I was enabled to make the best sandwich I have ever made for myself beside a creek across from an abandoned mine trail. I took photos of that sandwich. These guides truly do love food and sharing their love of cooking as much as they love sharing their love of nature. I cannot recommend Momentum River Expeditions more highly. I’m not naive enough to believe that I’ve made friends for life on this trip, but I can honestly say that I met people with whom I would want to be friends with for the rest of my life. "
  • "2 words…beyond expectation! With so many ‘tourist’ type companies operating these days, we were hoping the experience would live up to the blurb. It was better! Special thanks to Arden who is an amazing lady….one of a kind. Within minutes of meeting, we felt relaxed, safe and knew we were in good hands. Our 2 girls (aged 7 and 8) loved their first ever rafting experience as did Mummy and Daddy. Arden could not have done more to make it a lifelong memorable experience for us all. Thank you again…Maria, Richard and the girls."
  • "Our group of 4 went with Erik and Beth down the Rogue River for 3 days. It was a combo white water raft/kayak trip. The guides were excellent, the food and accommodations were superb, and the trip was one of the best I have ever been on. I have booked trips in Africa, Argentina, New Zealand, and many other locales. Momentum is by far has the best guides and service. The Rogue River trip is great for families, friends, and people of all ages. I highly recommend this adventure!"
  • "Thank you Pete for providing a first class business. Each trip with Momentum proves again what a high quality service you provide. Your guides, Anthony, Jeff and, of course Beth are excellent representatives of your company. Safety, service, adventure and attention to detail are trademarks for you and your company. I admit I was out of my element the first couple of days, but, I always felt safe with your crew. Thanks Pete for lifetime memories."
  • "Mike and I returned last week from our Salmon River trip. I just wanted to let you know that we found it absolutely fantastic! It was a little bit hard to wrap my mind around the idea of “camping” in the same sentence as “luxury”—I’m not really used to having my gear packed off, my tent set up, and appetizers waiting—but it was fantastic in every way. Great staff, great food, very well planned and organized in the many details such as transportation to and from the ends of the river, amounts and variety of food, timing of the details of each day (sending the gear boats off, having meals and appetizers prepared on a schedule). The Salmon River canyon is also a fantastically beautiful area."
  • "The guys are still buzzing about the trip, and I think I speak for everyone when I say it was the finest whitewater river that we’ve ever done"
  • "There are a ton of companies offering river trips in Oregon, and it can be easy to become overwhelmed by promises, prices and hype. Look no further, we’ve done the research, we’ve gone on two Momentum trips in the past few years and this is hands’ down the best. I am not paid by Momentum! I’m just a middle-aged LA working mom who loves to travel and eat! My vacations need to be good, and this one was right at the top of the list."
  • "What could we do to make the trip better? Bring a grand piano? Actually, I can’t imagine what you could improve. "
  • "Ron and I have been on over 25 trips over the last 40 years by far the BEST TRIP, the most enjoyable, keep up the great work."
  • "The trip was exceptional. Andy is a true talent. He was well-respected as the leader. The team did a great job. I’ve been rafting for 25 years and this was the best team and experience I’ve ever had."
  • "I am a veteran of over 100 whitewater river rafting/kayaking trips world-wide and I must tell you that absolutely the best outfitter I have experienced is Momentum River Expeditions. From the guide (Arden) to the shuttle driver (Alan) to the food (snack before the trip, lunch part-way down the river, snack at the take-out), to the equipment they use to the river rapids (in my view many long Class IV and one Class V- rapids), this trip was awesome! Not only do I wholeheartedly endorse Momentum for the Upper Klamath but I will book them for trips on the Scott and Cal Salmon also. You would be wise to go with this outfitter!"

The California Salmon with Wilder Projects – Wilderness Gourmet River Safari Testimonials

  • "Just returned from the Upper Klamath Wilderness Gourmet Rafting Safari - 3 day trip. What's beautiful about these river trips is the camaraderie and friendships you build through the adventures together. This trip was a nice reunion with guide-friends whom I've been traveling with since 2012, and meeting new friends who you already have a personal connection with from the river. Pete, Diego, Sol, Marc - a big Thank You!! Momentum guides are all very experienced, having run rivers all around the world, so I always trust them 110%! Since this was a gourmet trip, we had Chef Matt Domingo on the trip again, who just blew everyone away with his culinary awesomeness! The Upper Klamath has long stretches of fun class 3-4 rapids... gorgeous scenery for much-needed river & nature therapy. The base camp is smartly put together - this is glamping, not roughing it at all! And you can choose the activities at your comfort levels - from mountain biking, hiking, and inflatable kayaks. We also had a serious corn hole tournament! :) Looking foward to planning the next trip - on the Salmon!"
  • "The best meal in the middle of nowhere"
  • "My 15 year old daughter and I cannot get over how much fun we had on this trip. We expected great rafting and incredible food. What we did not anticipate was how nice our guides would be. Pete, Robyn, Tessa and James were so much fun and such a delight to be with. They are not only incredible guides but great rafting companions as well. Thanks guys for all you did to make this a trip Carissa and I will always remember. Can't wait to do it again! "

Rogue River Trail Hiking Testimonials

Itinerary & Mileage Testimonials

  • "We have traveled with many guide companies in the past including Backroads, Country Walkers, REI, Northwest Frontiers Scotland, Mountain Travel Sobek, etc and can honestly say we have never had a guide any better than Andy. He took great care to make everything run smoothly, accommodated us at every turn, and was always cheerful,patient, and friendly (sounds like the Boy Scout Handbook). Above all he is a genuinely nice guy..."
  • "It’s five months after our hike and we still talk about our excellent adventure. Can’t say to many good things about Mark, our trip guide. Mark’s advice and never ending help and service made for a wonderful outing. We had been on the Rogue River several times in kayaks or rafting and were happy to discover the river is even prettier from the trail."
  • "Mark was our guide for the 4-day Rogue River Trail Hike. Mark is an exceptionally knowledgeable and well travelled guide. He is personable and thoughtful. Even though my wife and I do a lot of travel that includes hiking, due to the pandemic we had not been on a hike for several months. On a couple of the longer days we rode in the raft where other sides of Mark's skills were on display. Because of his photography background he positioned us for some wonderful pictures. The conversations were engaging. He'd visited many places where we have travelled including Morocco. We also discussed his trip to New Zealand another place we are planning to visit. Great food, good service, beautiful scenery, a great time."
  • "Thanks so much for a fabulous trip. Fortunately, the skies cleared as promised and it was great hiking. Our guides made the trip! Glen and Trish were very proficient river rafters, chefs, and people wranglers. Staying at lodges with sheets and showers was better than glamping. And during a time of COVID the precautions were taken so we felt safe. This allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the river and forget about the 2020 craziness. Our group had a wonderful time and the respite. Thank you again!"
