Jordan – Best time to go

Best time to visit Jordan

Spring is a great time to visit Jordan, as temperatures from March to May hover around the high twenties – hot but not stifling, as summer temperatures can be – and the lush valleys and hills are in full bloom. While winter temperatures inland drop well below freezing, the Red Sea remains temperate from September to February, making Aqaba ideal for winter sun.  

Best times to visit

Dry Season

Summer temperature between June and September can reach the mid 40's. Retreat to the heavenly warm waters.

Our Favourite Season

March to May are certainly our favourite times to visit. Experiencing the country's green hills and desert landscapes at cooler temperatures.
