Best time to visit the Middle East & North Africa

Although considered by some as year-round destinations, the best time to visit countries of the Middle East & North Africa will depend largely on the activities you have in mind. Spring (March to May) and Fall (September to November) offer pleasant temperatures for exploration but also draw larger crowds. Summer (June to August) brings intense heat, making it less popular for outdoor activities, while Winter (December to February) can be milder but with occasional chilly spells. Generally, we would suggest visiting during the shoulder seasons of Spring and Fall for a balance between comfortable weather and manageable crowds.
