Staff Activities – Tikchik staff enjoy kayaking, hiking, boating, fishing and occasionally flying to different locations for fishing or sightseeing. Tikchik is located in an incredible area for day trips. Tikchik Lake connects to Nuyukuk Lake ( 20 miles long) and Chauekuktuli, Lake, which is also 20 miles long, providing a vast area to explore. This area is abundant with bear, moose and caribou, not to mention world class fishing. We have power boats and kayaks that employees are free to use during their time off. Tikchik has terrific fishing right in front of the lodge and it is not unusual to view wildlife in close proximity to the lodge as well.

Gratuities – Tikchik is renowned for our extraordinary level of service which is uncommon at Alaska resorts. Because of this service our guests typically leave very generous tips which are given at the end of their stay.
