Whitewater Rafting meets Backcountry Glamping

Momentum River Expeditions Upper Klamath

Ashland’s Momentum River Expeditions has a new river trip for 2015. The Upper Klamath 2-Day Multi-Sport starts from Ashland and combines rafting some of the best summer whitewater on the West Coast with an ultra-comfortable private backcountry camp (think glamping) and options for mountain biking, running, inflatable kayaking, and fly fishing.
