About Archipelago Choice

We’re the friendly Holiday Specialists!

At Archipelago Choice, our small friendly team of holiday specialists has been organising tailor-made holidays to the 23 Portuguese (and former Portuguese) islands of the Atlantic. We started with a very special group of islands in 1998 called the Azores and over the past 20 years have added Madeira and the more adventurous African islands of Cape Verde, Saõ Tomé and Príncipe.

At Archipelago Choice we look at travel as a journey, not only to the places we’re visiting but of ourselves – it creates the space where we’re more open to people, more responsive to ideas and alive with the joy of living on this wonderful world!

It’s 20 years since Archipelago Choice started organising travel experiences and in that time we’ve met a lot of people. Some we’ve employed, others we work with, and some we’d love to work with.  In 2019 and 2020, we’re celebrating our anniversary and have introduced 6 new amazing travel experiences in partnership with some of our friends around the world.

We’re all experienced travellers at Archipelago Choice and in our view the key to a successful holiday is hands on personal experience.  All the holidays we organise are put together with great care using our extensive knowledge of the destinations we offer and our experience of travelling around them. For us, flexibility and a good ear are essential requirements for planning any successful holiday. This, combined with our extensive range of activities, accommodation and of course our own travel experiences and we have time tested recipe for a success.

Let’s go travelling!

NB: For the curious, you’ll wonder why we’re called Archipelago Choice when we also offer destinations that aren’t islands.  The simple answer is we used to just offer islands and Archipelago is such a lovely word which we have grown to love and maybe next year we’ll find a few more islands to offer!
