See where satellites launch into outer space with a tour of Kourou Space Centre (Centre Spatial Guyanais). In 1964, the French government chose this uninhabited territory--close to the equator and protected from tropical storms and earthquakes--as a base from which to send its satellites into the cosmos. Take the highly informative three-hour bus tour of the launch pads and control room where the launching is programmed. Note the tour is usually in French, but the guides will answer all your questions in English. Amenities include a gift shop. Check the website for the launch schedule and reserve a place at one of the center's observation points (or watch with the locals from one of Kourou's beaches). Add Kourou Space Centre (Centre Spatial Guyanais) to your Kourou travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Kourou holiday planner.
