The Wave Tour in Southern Utah, Coyote Buttes, & Vermillion Cliffs
The Wave Tour:
Not the traditional tour offered to the masses, our spectacular guided Wave Tour allows you to enjoy this natural wonder that dates back to the Jurassic age. Don’t worry about getting lost in the high desert elements on the rugged trackless hike required to reach this natural wonder. Take advantage of the knowledge your guide will share with you about the geology and history of your awaiting adventure. The Wave Tour is one of the most popular tours in all of USA’s National Parks!
The Wave is a sandstone rock formation located in the United States near the Arizona and Utah border on the slopes of the coyote Buttes, in the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, on the Colorado Plateau. It is famous among hikers and photographers for its colorful and astonishing forms. The Wave consists of intersecting U-shaped troughs that have been eroded into Navajo Sandstone.
In order to hike ‘The Wave,’ you must have a permit. The Bureau of Land Managment (BLM) limits access to the North Coyote Buttes Wilderness Area to just twenty permits per day. Ten of the permits are available in advance by an on-line lottery that is conducted four months before the month for which the permit is sought. The remaining ten permits are made available by lottery the day before one’s intended hike. Year round the lottery is held at the ranger station on the east end of Kanab. The lottery for the walk-in permits takes place at 9:00 in the morning. YOU DO NOT NEED A PERMIT FOR OUR GUIDES. We have permission and permits authorized by the BLM to take hikers who obtain their own permit to The Wave.
