Dedicated and passionateEurope Active is run by Frenchman Anthony Laplagne and his English partner, Harriet Bristow as well as by a team of friendly local staff throughout our offices.
Europe Active was set up by Anthony Laplagne in 2005.
After completing his further education in business studies, he packed up his luggage and set about living and working in various places around the globe.
Anthony has spent seven years living on the island of Reunion, two years in Hungary, one and a half years in the United-Arabs Emirates. All of these different adventures were an opportunity to discover new cultures and meet people involved in tourism.
Back in France, he was hired as an executive in Ajaccio, Corsica, where he became a specialist in developing local hiking holidays.
Today, with many years of experience, of technical, legal and commercial knowledge in tourism, Anthony is able to share his enthusiasm for walking, cycling and riding motorbikes through his own company, Europe Active.
A lifetime passion for the environment, outdoor sports and for travel came about through growing up and working in countries such as Zambia, Kenya, Dubai, Cyprus, India and Tanzania.
Harriet (Harry) spends her spare time avidly exploring places by foot or on a bike and more recently, on her motorbike!
After graduating from a UK university with a degree in Geography she worked tirelessly for the Government, most recently as the Deputy Head of the UK negotiating team, for the United Nations Climate Change negotiations.
Swapping the daily grind of London to the mountains of Corsica, Harry is now further developing Europe-Active for english speaking clients and is happy to answer your questions.
