“There are not many places left on earth where you feel so small and can see and feel the earth changing right before you’re eyes. But there are also the gentle moments and more tranquil details. Sunny afternoons in fields of wildflowers, the smooth power of the current sweeping you through a massive landscape the surreal way the light plays across the glacial ice, watching a bear lazily forage for berries at dusk late, sunsets over the craggy peaks, majestic icebergs silhouetted in the moonlight and the sound of waves gently lapping against them, the clink of 10,000 year old ice in your favorite evening cocktail, the flickering of a campfire and the simple joy of being outside in one of the world’s most wild and beautiful places..we look forward to sharing it with you” ~ Momentum River Expeditions
