Arizona Rafting Trips

The World-Class Desert Wilderness of Arizona's Salt River

We are a guide owned and operated company offering whitewater rafting in Arizona.  

You will enjoy world-class off the beaten path river trips with unparalleled personal service, handcrafted quality, attention to detail and organic meals, all hosted by one of the most experienced (and friendly) guide staffs in the world.  

Known as the ‘Grand Canyon’ State, Arizona is home to another, lesser known, whitewater gem – the Salt River.  The Salt is the largest river that is entirely located within the state of Arizona and hosts the earliest whitewater rafting season in the United States.  When much of the country is still shoveling their driveways, the sun is warming the Sonoran desert and the stately saguaro cactus casts a long shadow over blooming desert flowers.  Experience the Salt River in a small group with a high guide to guest ratio.  Whether you are an experienced paddler or an adventurous first-timer, join us for an Arizona desert river trip like no other.

  • " 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."
  • "I think I have been on a half dozen trips with Momentum (and dozens with other river outfitters so I know what I am talking about in this one limited area). Momentum rocks! Absolutely the best in every category. The guides are unbelievable in their knowledge of the surroundings and in their ability to make everyone feel welcome and challenged. The food is first class. Every trip is pure fun from dawn till late night."
