Travel + Leisure A List Travel Agent Olivia Schellenberg

Olivia Schellenberg

T+L TOP TRAVEL ADVISOR | ARGENTINA AND CHILE SPECIALIST 

Schellenberg has a particular interest in the region’s dramatic landscapes, and she often recommends out-there itineraries. Her favorite spots include places like El Calafate, where the stargazing is second to none, and the incomparable Iguazú Falls, on the border between Argentina and Brazil. Some on-the-rise locations Schellenberg is excited about this year are Pucón, San Martín de los Andes, and Bariloche. These locations offer immense natural beauty, endless opportunities for outdoor exploration, lodgings that are as approachable as they are chic, and an authentic local experience. Schellenberg is a big proponent of having her clients dive into the soul of Argentina and Chile — the two countries are spontaneous and raw, she says. “I’m excited about the growing trend of rustic lodges where experience is more important than amenities,” Schellenberg says. “Bahía Bustamante and El Pedral, both on Argentina’s Atlantic Coast, are two great examples of this. Both are historic properties that tell a story about the settlement of Patagonia.”
