Tour Director Profile: Lucelia Scarpelli, Argentina & Chile Posted January 25, 2021
Since she was a child, Lucelia knew she wanted to study tourism and explore the world. So after living in the U.S. for 18 months, in 2005 she returned home to Argentina to become, as she says, “an ambassador of her region for American guests.”
“Traveling is a transformational opportunity, and as a Tour Director in South America, I work to minimize cultural gaps and support human connections,” explains Lucelia. “My goal is to see each guest go back home with a better understanding and a warmth in their hearts after enjoying the diversity and uniqueness of this land.”

For Lucelia, Patagonia is the ultimate adventure. “I love taking Odysseys guests to such breathtaking sites as Torres del Paine National Park or the constantly calving Perito Moreno Glacier,” she says, adding that she always seeks out unique trails or hidden sites where guests can best appreciate the magic of these places.
