Meet the team

Jake Cardigan

Destination Specialist

Having spent the last 20 years working as part of the Archipelago Choice team, I have enjoyed many amazing adventures to both the Azores and Cape Verde islands and I’m always eager to start planning the next!

Past highlights include taking to the seas in a traditional Azorean whaling boat, off the south coast of Sao Miguel in the Azores, and hiking in the Serra da Malagueta natural park on Santiago in Cape Verde.  I really enjoy sharing my experiences and drawing from them to create fantastic holiday itineraries for others to enjoy.

Away from the office, my main focus is music. I’ve been playing the cello for about 40 years and enjoy performing with several orchestras and ensembles around the Cumbria and Borders region.

The Azores will forever hold a special place in my heart, because I proposed to my girlfriend….and she said yes!
