Accommodations: Tincup Wilderness Lodge comprises a main lodge and three somewhat smaller free-standing log cabins, each divided into two accommodation units. The lodge and cabins are built of red Canadian cedar wood, which creates very pleasant living spaces. Each accommodation unit has a separate hot-water shower and its own lavatory.

Dining: When you are situated in one of the Yukon’s most spectacular settings, you should also be treated to the Yukon’s finest cuisine. Tincup emphasizes scrumptious, home-style meals, with an international twist. Meals are served at the main lodge at set times, and guests can arrange for picnic lunches in advance. After providing you with a hearty breakfast, they prepare exquisite soups and fresh sandwiches for lunch or a snack. Coffee and freshly baked cakes and quiches are available throughout the day.
Activities: 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 gravel filled creek beds to more challenging hikes up any one of the 1500 to 2000 meter high mountains which completely surround Tincup Lake. In addition, the lodge provides guests with the use of a cedar rowing boat, canoes, one-person kayaks, stand up paddleboards (SUPs) and Lund Motorboats.
