Cruise-lovers keen to see more during a wildlife expedition on the seas this autumn should be sure to pack a pair of hand-crafted binoculars from SWAROVSKI OPTIK, a world-leading manufacturer of long-range optics.

Wildlife destinations well-suited for autumnal cruises include the islands of Scotland, where a wide range of bird species can be spotted with SWAROVSKI OPTK’s CL Companion binoculars. Further afield, whale watchers should head for the coast of Alaska, where SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 32 binoculars can be a valuable aid in the search for pods of whales. For those who already own a pair of SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars and are keen to capture close-up photographs of emperor penguins in Antarctica, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s VPA variable phone digiscoping adapter is the perfect accessory as it attaches to most smartphones and instantly turns it into a telephoto zoom lens.

View Scotland’s Autumnal Landscapes with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion Binoculars, From £970
Intrepid travellers keen to see more of the UK’s spectacular wildlife this autumn should consider booking a wildlife cruise through the islands of the Outer Herbrides, Inner Hebridges and Argyll in Scotland, where a wide range of bird species can be seen. The area is also home to bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoise, orcas, minke whales and basking sharks. For those travelling to Scotland with hand luggage, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion binoculars can easily be packed away, due to their light weight of 490g and compact size. For spotting wildlife from on board the ship, the CL Companion binoculars fit perfectly in the hand and are available in either 8x or 10x magnification, ensuring viewing is smooth and jitter-free. The elegantly-designed binoculars also come with a bespoke accessory package, which consists of a field bag plus a carrying strap and is available in three designs: NORTHERN LIGHTS, URBAN JUNGLE and WILD NATURE.

Trek for Bears in Alaska with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 Binoculars, From £1,730
Along with viewing glaciers and dramatic landscapes, travellers on board a cruise along the coast of Alaska can spot pods of whales, mountain goats, sea otters and bald eagles. For watching wildlife during sustained viewing periods, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 binoculars are the best choice when size and weight are important factors. The model’s unique wrap-around grip allows the binoculars to fit comfortably in a wildlife watcher’s hands and the 8x magnification offers the largest possible 141-metre field-of-view, which is well-suited for spotting distant animals on the shore and in the ocean. The binoculars are available in green or sand-brown and offer users crystal-clear, colour-true images with razor-sharp contours. For more information, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.

Capture Unforgettable Moments in Antarctica with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s VPA variable phone adapter, From £165
For wildlife lovers, an expedition cruise to Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Although a distance to travel to from the UK, a cruise to Earth’s southernmost continent offers the chance to spot leopard seals, humpback whales and emperor penguins. For those who already own a pair of SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars and are keen to capture close-up photographic evidence of their wildlife spots, the VPA variable phone digiscoping adapter from SWAROVSKI OPTIK attaches to most smartphones, instantly turning it into a telephoto zoom lens. The VPA variable phone adapter’s weight, height and camera recess position can be adjusted and can be easily mounted to most of SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s binoculars and spotting scopes using three different adapter rings. The adapter is available in an anthracite colour and is light yet rugged thanks to the use of fiberglass-reinforced polymer. For further details, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.
