The Tincup Wilderness lodge is a unique place; both the wilderness and the luxury are combined. We took a float plane from Whitehorse; there is also a helicopter for trips in the vicinity.

Meinrad, the owner/operator, has an eye for detail; at the same time he honours the splendour of nature. It is truly a lifetime experience.
I feel so lucky to have found Tincup Lodge. It was the trip of a lifetime. I arrived by helicopter from Burwash Landing after being picked up in Whitehorse. All arranged in advance by the lodge. Meinrad, the owner of the lodge, owns it and has a license to fly. What a way to arrive - the trip was incredible flying through the mountains. You arrive at this breathtaking remote location surrounded by mountains and Tincup Lake was like glass. I hiked, kayaked, encountered wildlife if you want to be active or you can sit on the deck and just soak up the surroundings. My cabin was luxurious and the food and service was five-star. I loved my time there and can’t wait to return.
I needed a Tincup rejuvenation so I went back there last week. This place is incredible, beauty is everywhere you look. We got a day of rain in showers and we could get the smells of nature all over the lake while fishing. Fishing was exceptional as usual. I even got a huge trout from the shore in front of the lodge after a few casts before dinner one night. I got a big pike too, which I was not expecting. It seems that pikes are around in the few shallower areas of the lake. We had a good time in the fishermen's/fisherwomen's lounge. A great horned owl came one night on the railing in front of the window and looked at us for a while. A mother lynx and her kittens are also a familiar sight at Tincup. They come around 9 pm and check for rabbits or smaller critters. Meinrad keeps this place very pristine. It is my #1 place to go. This place is very high-end and yet remains modest and unassuming. Congratulations Meinrad.
