The best time to visit Israel & the OPT

The best time to visit Israel is generally during spring or autumn, though the entire country faces dramatic changes from region to region. The weather in Israel is normally very pleasant from late March to mid July. Spring is glorious and summer is hot and sunny.

The north gets most of its rain during the winter months (November to February) and it can even snow on occasion, but on the whole you’ll find it much warmer than the UK.
