Great trip! Great guides great food! Sauna and showers were awesome. Wished there was less waiting and more map and compass or identifying trees or other activities in camp. Great fun great people!

This trip was OUTSTANDING. I can't say with words how much fun I had with MedTreks, AdventurUS Women, and Momentum River Expeditions. The white water was amazing, the food delicious, the accommodations luxurious, and the memories/relationships will last a lifetime. I had so much good, big fun! Highly recommend to everyone.

I loved this trip. I loved being on the water and trusting the skills of the guides. I loved that everyone was so helpful and happy to be there. The food was amazing, the shower and sauna were great extra touches. I will book another trip for sure!

This entire trip was amazing! Every aspect was thoughtfully put together and we felt that. The attitudes held by everyone seemed genuine, positive, calm and fun - always fun. Thank you

This was a phenomenal trip led by amazing people. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since I have never done an organized group trip abroad but this far exceeded my expectations. Active, engaging, rejuvenating, and fun- this trip had every element I was looking for and more. You could tell that the leaders of the group (Ari and Angie) put a ton of effort into making it a success and the effort showed. I will be recommending MedTreks to all of my friends and family!
