Private Trips from Southern Oregon

Just you, your guides, and one of our incredible rivers

Now is a better time than ever to enjoy the outdoors with your friends or family on one of our close-to-home incredible rivers, with a company known for its private and custom trips. It’s just you, your Momentum guides, and the river. From a few relaxing days on the scenic Rogue River to an exciting day of steep rapids on the Upper Klamath, there’s something for everyone. These trips are all close to our home in Ashland, Oregon. All you have to do is choose your river, pick your dates, assemble your group, and let us handle the rest.

Close to half of our trips are private or chartered, allowing us to cater to the unique needs and interests of our guests on all of our rivers. You can select one of our (already amazing) standard itineraries, or create a custom trip that’s perfect for your group. We really enjoy working with guests to create their ideal custom trip, from adding something luxurious like a local wine and cheese tasting, to specific logistics that accommodate all experience levels in the group. We already love doing these trips, and now is a better time than ever to enjoy a remote and exclusive escape.

This trip is just you and your guides. Spending time in the wilderness is one of the best ways to enjoy your summer in a relatively isolated way. We are also taking additional precautions to sanitize all gear such as rafts, vans, paddles, personal guest gear, etc.

A private trip is a great way to enjoy uninterrupted time with the river and with your group. Our staff is experienced and passionate about sharing these amazing places with you, no matter your needs or interests.



Give us a call or send us an email so that we can help you with logistics, and finding or creating the right trip for you.
