Alex Burridge

Managing Director

In 2001/2 I undertook the first of many voyages to the High Arctic & Antarctica. The Polar regions became a passion for me.  My experience and knowledge gained whilst working as Peregrine’s Polar Expeditions Manager, working with Quark Expeditions and One Ocean Expeditions, allows me to offer expert advice to ensure your trip south really is the trip of a lifetime.  In July 2018 is re-visited the Arctic, this time on an ice-breaker the 50 Years of Victory to the top of the world; the North Pole.
