Florencia Savanti

Florencia "Flor" Savanti is an anthropologist, community organizer, and Trip Leader with a deep connection to the Basque culture and countryside. Born in Argentina, her love of the outdoors took root when she worked as an archaeologist in the wilderness of Patagonia for 15 years, and has followed her ancestral roots back to Northern Spain in 2002 where she now lives with her family. She has served as an archaeological consultant for the Basque Museum of Bilbao, and has led hiking trips in the Basque country and the Pyrenees for more than a decade. When not guiding, Flor stays actively involved in anthropological work for several community-based programs in the Basque country and afar. Her current projects promote women's literacy and empowerment in the Karakoram mountains of Pakistan and the arid steppes of Northern Patagonia.
