Saving Archipelago Choice - Our Lake District Holidays

Saving Archipelago Choice – With a little help from our friends

Saving Archipelago Choice – with a little help from our friends

Today is the 27th June 2020 and there have been many ups and downs over the past 4 months. As I sit here in the office on a showery Saturday morning thinking “how strange it is to run a business and not have any customers!”.

Well, that’s travel for you!

This morning the government announced travel bridges to certain destinations in Europe. Unfortunately Portugal is not on the list and as we’re a Portugal, Azores, Madeira travel specialist we’ve gone from the frying pan to the fire….’What a pickle!’

So today, after months are hard work and careful planning we’re about to launch our Lake District ‘saving Archipelago Choice’ Lock Down busting holidays (I can almost here the fanfares). You see, Archipelago Choice is very fortunate as we’re located in one the UK’s most spectacular and beautiful areas of the country….The Lake District.

Nature’s adventure playground is right on our doorstep: mountains to climb, lakes to swim in, beaches not far away, adrenaline-fueled activities and secluded valleys away from the crowds.

If we were to put our sensible heads on then I don’t think many people will be travelling abroad this summer (no matter what the government does with air bridges); too much hassle, too many uncertainties and I think most people will just say “let’s forget it”.

However, I also think everyone has an appetite to do something this summer and where there is a problem, there can be a solution.

So bring it on Archipelago Choice…after months of being at home; schooling the kids, Zooming meetings and flock wallpaper (if you have any) you need to escape – and Archipelago Choice may have the answer with one of our Lock Down Busting Lake District Holidays.

Sounds perfect, I’m in, sign me up!

From the 11th July to the end of September 2020 we’ll be offering the chance to escape on our great fun Lake District adventures.
