We are calling Tagish Wilderness Lodge our home
Gebhard Zuern, a passionate private pilot, has found his way into the tourism industry through the tour operator Imholz Canada/Alaska in Switzerland. He thereafter passed different stations in the industry, as a buyer for city trips and special group tours and as flight dispatch manager for a private jet company. In 2007, Gebhard decided to leave Switzerland for a period of time, to gather more important and useful experiences abroad. In exotic Cambodia, he has worked as Managing Director of Lolei Travel (Cambodia) and the Passaggio Boutique Hotel in Siem Reap / Angkor. At Tagish Wilderness Lodge, Gebhard is going to assist you in planning your stay, chooses the most suitable activities for you and will lead you to the best fishing spots.
Sarah Stuecker felt her passion for Canada already being a Teenager. She sought the relation to that fascinating country first of all also with Imholz Canada/Alaska. Years later and having gathered many other experiences in the incoming and outgoing sectors, Sarah got the opportunity to work as a buyer for the Swiss tour operator Skytours, specialized in North American travel products. Her many travels to the destination, alternating with visits to Southeast Asia have given her interesting inputs in hospitality and gastronomy. At Tagish Lake, Sarah will take care of your personal well being and invites you to taste her Asian flavoured dishes or to enjoy a hearty, traditional Swiss meal.
Iamee is one of our four-legged friends who accompanies us on walks, shopping trips to town and offers us many hilarious moments when playing around in the snow. We have adopted her from the Animal Shelter in Whitehorse, hoping that she was going to be a good lodge-dog. She actually is doing her job very well, is friendly and playful with guests, calm and quiet in-house and barks when there is wildlife around the lodge. However, when a squirrel or a bird teases her…
Pinot was born and raised at the lodge, under the previous owner. He is a very calm and friendly dog, even though he looks a bit wolfish. He is active and forgets himself easily when a special smell draws his attention. He is now enjoying his pension from his sled-dog life and already looks forward to the next winter, when he will be happy to pull you across Tagish Lake on your cross country skis!
All of us look very much forward to to being your hosts for your next vacation and remain at your disposal for any questions you may have.
