Average time to visit

Jordan has a varied climate, with stark contrasts throughout the year. The most popular time to travel to Jordan is from October to November, and March to April, as this is when daytime temperatures are warm and pleasant, and the weather is usually dry. In winter, Jordan can get very cold and wet, and it is not unusual for there to be at least a bit of snow. In summer, the country can get very hot, with temperatures sometimes rising to around 40 degrees Celscius from June to August.
