The M/S Freya was originally built in 1981 for the Swedish Maritime Administration as the lighthouse maintenance vessel M/S Fyrbjörn. M/S Freya is built to Lloyd´s class for unrestricted trade and has an ice class of 1A. In 2011 she was taken over by the Swedish Coast Guard as a multipurpose vessel. In 2015 Master Mariner AB brought the ship and named her "Freya af Göteborg" and converted her to an expedition ship.
For diving and snorkeling expeditions, there is a compressor (Bauer KA 14-55B) and a special diving ladder available.
The M/S Freya has a capacity for 12 passengers and 2 guides in seven twin cabins with port holes. Six of the cabins have private shower and WC and four have a third pullman bed that can be folded down if required.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
