Jordan’s climate is an important factor to consider when planning your trip. Although you can book your tour at any time of the year, it’s important to know the characteristics of each region depending on the season, especially regarding temperatures. We also share the best time to travel to Jordan and which season to avoid if you don’t tolerate heat well.
From a bioclimatic point of view, Jordan’s territory can be divided into “ecoregions,” areas with common natural characteristics that travelers can easily distinguish during their tour.
These ecoregions owe their current appearance largely to Jordan’s climate. They are:
Beyond the different ecoregions, there is a predominant feature throughout the country: temperatures are very high, probably higher than in your home country, practically all year round, especially during the day.
However, a striking characteristic of the climate in Jordan is the huge temperature swing between day and night, often with a difference of 15 ºC or even more. This makes the sensation of cold at night greater, which can be significant in winter, so you shouldn’t forget to pack thermal or warm clothing.
On the other hand, rainfall is scarce or practically non-existent in large areas of the country throughout the year. A wet season can only be said to exist in the Mediterranean climate zone during winter.
Taking everything into account, it is worth asking what is the best time to travel to Jordan. In fact, in the tourism industry, there is talk of high, low, and intermediate seasons, which do not necessarily correspond to the summer, winter, spring, and fall seasons.
