Tincup Wilderness Lodge, off the beaten track even by Yukon standards, offers the ultimate wilderness experience. The, fly in only, Lodge is perched on the doorstep of Kluane National Park in the heart of Western Yukon.
Guests at the Lodge have the opportunity to balance their outdoor recreation in a number of ways.
Tincup Lodge provides exceptional angling opportunities along the 24-mile shoreline of the lake as well as at surrounding lakes and rivers. The clean waters of the area abound with Arctic Grayling, Lake Trout, Inconnnu, Northern Pike and White Fish.
Guided day hikes range from nice, easy treks along rock and grave filled creek beds to more challenging hikes up any one of the 1500 to 2000 meter high mountains which completely surround Tincup Lake. Game trails also serve the hiker with easy access routes to the high alpine country where guests can wonder for hours and still be in constast site of the lodge below. In addition, the lodge provides its guests with the use of its cedar canoe, rowboat and one-person kayaks.
The main cedar log Lodge features a dining room, bar, and an outdoor hot tub on the large deck and has spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountains. There is also a private lake front extra hot sauna.
Each of the cedar log cabin has a private shower, cozy woodstove and a covered veranda for admiring the breathtaking beauty of the wilderness. Each of the 5 cedar lodge cabins can accommodate 2 guests.
