When to Go

High Season (Mar–May)

  • Perfect weather throughout Jordan with warm days and cool nights.
  • Northern Jordan is blanketed in wildflowers in April.
  • Reserve rooms in main tourist areas and expect higher rates.

Shoulder (Sep–Feb)

  • The best time to visit the Red Sea; prices in and around Aqaba rise accordingly.
  • Bitter nights in the desert with rain or snow curtail many activities, such as camping.

Low Season (Jun–Aug)

  • The desert in the middle of the summer is extreme. Temperatures throughout Jordan can be stifling.
  • Prices are at their best but many places close in the low season.
