Best time to visit Israel

People often ask us what is the best time to visit Israel. Despite being around the same size as Vermont, Israel has seven different climate zones, and whether you like it hot in Eilat or want to go skiing in Hermon, Israel has it all. In fact — even though we certainly would not recommend it! — it is entirely possible to start the day skiing on Mount Hermon and finish it on a beach in Eilat during your winter holiday. This is why Israel does not really have a "low season" and it is difficult to answer what is the best time to visit Israel. However, we have prepared some tips for you.

What do you want to do?

If you are visiting Israel during the winter holidays, we recommend embarking on a sightseeing trip, because the Mediterranean Sea is relatively cold, or going to Eilat or the Dead Sea, which a year-round resort. Many of our itineraries include both sightseeing and relaxation on Israeli resorts. On the other hand, July and August are not the best time to visit Israel if you want to focus on sightseeing or go to Eilat, as the temperature could easily top +35 in Judea and +40 in Eilat and we would recommend choosing a more relaxed itinerary.

Have in mind that during the Jewish High Holidays, which are usually in September-October, the hotels are usually full and it might be harder to find offers for an acceptable price. Visiting Israel during the High Holidays is a unique experience, but we recommend that you contact us in advance so we could book the hotels and transfers for you before prices go up. The same is also true for Christmas and Easter. But in the end, the best time to visit Israel is when you want to visit it, and we will make sure to make your trip unforgettable.

There is a lot to see in Israel: our religious and cultural heritage, churches, mosques, synagogues, the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, and of Eilat, the nightlife of Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea with its wellness resorts. Regardless of when do you come to Israel and which region do you want to visit, Genesis Boutique Travel will make sure to deliver you an enjoyable vacation which you will remember for years and which will make you want to come to Israel again.
