When is the best time to go on vacation to Israel?


Although Israel is a small country, the weather in its various regions can vary significantly due to factors such as relief, proximity to the sea, and air humidity. So, in addition to the subtropical climate, there is an arid and even desert climate in some areas.

In Israel, the high season runs from late February to May and throughout the autumn, especially from the second half of September to the end of October, when Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) are observed. The weather is ideal at this time of year, with no sweltering summer heat or freezing winter rains.


Winter and summer are the low seasons in Israel. True, neither summer heat (up to +40 ° C) nor rainy winter days are a deterrent for many vacationers. For example, on the Red Sea coast in winter, the water temperature is +21 ° C, which is quite acceptable for some. Pilgrims from all over the world visit Israel's holy sites in all weather and seasons.


When is the best time to go to Eilat and the Red Sea coast?


The famous Israeli resort on the Red Sea's shores has a desert climate, which means it has very hot long summers and warm mild winters. Even in winter, when the weather permits, there are always people on the cleanest beaches in the area. The only thing to keep in mind is that it typically gets noticeably colder by nightfall.


The best months to visit Eilat are April-May and September-October. It is moderately hot and dry at this time of year, and there is no such heat as in summer when sunbathing is simply dangerous. The autumn months are ideal for diving because the water is at its clearest.

When is the best time to go to Tel Aviv, Haifa, and the Mediterranean coast?


The beach season on Israel's Mediterranean coast begins in May and ends in October. At the same time, the summer in Haifa, for example, is not as hot as in other cities, and the humidity is high: the mountains prevent air masses from passing further.


It is best to visit Tel Aviv and Haifa between May and June, and September and October. Summers are too hot here, but beginning in November, the weather cools and rains begin.

When is the best time to go to Ein Bokek and the Dead Sea coast?

Summer vacations on the Israeli Dead Sea coast are not recommended. The temperature is unbearably high - + 35–37 ° C. That is why some people visit Ein Bokek during the winter. In theory, it makes sense: it will turn out to be a cheap rest, with the temperature dropping only to +19 °. The best time to visit the Dead Sea, however, is between March and May, and October and November, when swimming in the healing salty waters are most comfortable.

When is the best time to go to Jerusalem, Nazareth, and central Israel?


Almost any season is suitable for traveling to the center of Israel. Get ready for a huge number of pilgrims from all over the world. They come to Jerusalem and Nazareth all year round, especially on holidays - the Jewish Passover, the Jewish New Year, the Day of Judgment, and the Feast of Tabernacles.

The heat in the center of the country sets in already in April and begins to subside only in October. Except for the hottest summer months, this period is considered a high season, when the cost of services and airfare skyrockets. Therefore, if you cannot stand high temperatures and prices, plan a trip to Jerusalem and Nazareth at the most pleasant time for this - the beginning of spring and the end of autumn. Least of all tourists and pilgrims in February-March.


When is the best time to go skiing on Mount Hermon in Israel?


From December to March, Israel's only ski resort is open. Snow on the slopes can last until April, and it may not melt until the summer.

You can come in the summer if you don't want to conquer the slopes on skis or sleds. The funicular will still operate, and the coolness of the mountains will keep you cool. Hermon also provides a breathtaking view of the lake and valley.

When is it cheaper to go to Israel?

From July to October, the most expensive flight to Israel will cost you 10-30% more than the average price for the year. However, if you travel in May or June, you can save up to 40% off the August ticket prices.


The cheapest months to visit Israel's Red and Dead Seas are January, February, and March. Even if your trip to Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Eilat is scheduled during peak season, you can avoid overpayments.
