When to visit Egypt

When to Go

Peak Season (October –February)

  • Coolest and most comfortable weather
  • Best time for cultural visits

Shoulder Season (March – May & September)

  • Spring brings occasional dust storms disrupting flights.
  • Warm seas, cool sea breeze and no crowds on the coastal areas
  • Best time to visit the Red Sea

Low Season (June to August)

  • Scorching summer sun means only the hardiest sightseers visit Upper Egypt
  • Along the coastline the weather is cooler than elsewhere, but the beaches are crowded and hotel rooms are hard to find
  • Best time for a Nile River Cruise
