We drove here late to have a look. The area is closed but they have some information that you can read outside. There is also a rocket of some kind outside, great for photos!

Don't expect Cap Canaveral of Huston Space Center, this is Sweden. If you have a keen interest in space, rockets and balloons you will find this a god place. The small exhibition is opened every day bit if possible you should go for a guided...More

One of the reasons why we wanted to visit Kiruna is that the place is increasingly becoming a hub for space explorations and research. It's not possible to go through the gate but there is this interesting visitor centre, unmanned, where you can walk in...More

The base is not that good to visit, since it is impossible to see the cool stuffs that they do there as a tourist. By the way the view from the radar hill is breathtaking, even if taking pictures is strictly forbidden everywhere in ESRANGE

Despite my best efforts (pehaps they didn't believe I really am a nuclear physicist) it was impossible to get in for a look around. They are either too busy or it's too hush-hush. Shame really.

Being of part the official delegate to visit the Esrange space center, the first thing that comes to my mind is the breathtaking view. We also stayed for 3 nights at the provided accommodation and ate our food in as well. We visited the rocket...More
