Dan Wettlaufer | Owner & Pilot

Dan grew up in the tourism & outfitting business working with his family in wilderness adventure. As a youngster being up at the lodge in the summer, many new skills were learned operating in these remote locations. Over the years the expansion into other lakes and operations continued with the purchase and development of Lynx Tundra Lodge on the edge of the tree line in the Northwest Territories. After so many years working in the north, Dan still enjoys the adventure and finds it rewarding to have the opportunity to be a part of his guests’ memories of a lifetime.


“Look for the job that you would take if you didn’t need a job” – Warren Buffett







A great team of staff, friends and family, work hard every year to make the season a success.


No roads, no service, fly-in only

Andrew Lake is in the extreme northeast corner of Alberta bordering the Northwest Territories and Saskatchewan. South Leland Lake is 50km west and our region is Alberta’s sole claim to the Canadian shield. The land is a combination of rugged outcroppings of granite rock and characterized by over 100 lakes. Our Lynx Tundra Lodge is in the NWT on Lynx Lake another 400 km north on the edge of the tree line and tundra.

Building Memories

Given our geography, there truly is nothing else like being up here! We are only accessible by plane, located in the rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield. Clean, cold, fish filled waters divided by outcroppings of billion year old pre cambrian granite make this the most isolated part of the province.
