I want to start by saying how grateful our group of three was for Momentum honoring our trip even though we were the only group that book for the dates we chose. We were essential given a private trip for the price of a group trip. They could have easily canceled our trip or tried to move our dates. This... More

This is a river with no dams or water controls that can only be rafters under very specific conditions. With class V+ rapids it is exciting but also extremely remote, with zero cell service or ability to reach the outside world. Only a few thousand people have ever actually rafters the river in all of human history. It's quite spectacular... More

This is a first rate, professionally run company. All of the guides go out of their way to make all of the guests feel welcome. The food is a wonderful surprise. It is amazing what gastronomical delights are possible in such remote locations.

My wife and I went rafting with Momentum as part of an anniversary trip to CA and OR. We pretty much had the Upper Klamath to ourselves on a beautiful Saturday in late September. Just the two of us with Tyler, our guide. Tyler was experienced, informative, and friendly - probably the best guide we have ever had. We had... More

My rafting group (actually, a bunch of middle-aged city-slickers who pretend we are younger than we actually are) has been hitting America's best whitewater for the past 20 years. To celebrate our 20th year, we rafted the Rogue Wild and Scenic River with Momentum. They were fabulous. (And since our motto is "liberty, fraternity, luxury," we have high standards. We... More

A group of friends and I (10 in all) just finished a three-day rafting trip down the Rogue River with Momentum. The guys at Momentum were fantastic. Andrew and Cooper guided the boats, made camp, and prepared all meals on our trip. They were engaging, highly knowledgeable, and super nice. The meals were fantastic, and the camp sites were also...

Rafting the Upper Klamath was the main feature of our tour of southern Oregon (along with Crater Lake Zipline and a hike to the top of Mount Scott). We've done quite a few whitewater raft trips so we were tuned in to the program. Momentum picked us up right at our hotel (Ashland Hills). From there it's a relatively long... More

What a blast! Alan and Anthony were fantastic guides that encouraged us to push our boundaries. We rafted exciting rapids on the raft with our friends and in inflatable Kayaks (scary fun), jumped off high rocks into the river, and swam in river pools that drained into the Rogue. Our guides did not "cheap" us on this trip. They stopped... More
