The team will tour Gatland's native New Zealand in 2017 following their successful series against Australia in the summer.
"It was an incredible experience to be involved, very humbled, very privileged," BBC Sport quotes Gatland as saying. "I suppose, for me, going to New Zealand, it would be a great opportunity in 2017 but there's a huge amount of water to pass under the bridge before that.
"For me the focus is the next couple of years doing well for Wales and if Wales do well in the Six Nations and the World Cup then you put yourself in the frame and hopefully get asked again.
"You never know and if I was asked to do it again and particularly back in my home country I think it would be something I would relish."
The Lions had not won a Test series over Australia for 16 years until their tour this year.
