It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Israel

Peak Season: July to August; mid-September to October; March to mid-April

Summer tourists plus high heat and humidity can make for a less than ideal experience. The weather is nicer in April, September, and October, but the Passover, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur holidays drive prices to their peak. Additionally, many restaurants and tourists spots shut down and the hotels are crowded.

Off Season: December to January

The Christmas holidays aren’t celebrated in most of this Jewish country, so rooms are easy to find. There’s occasional rain (with more on the coast) and the weather is colder, but snow is rare.

Sweet Spot: March to June; mid-October to November

Israel is carpeted in flowers in spring, plus there are long, 80-degree days and good swimming in the Mediterranean. Fall is equally beautiful and less crowded once the High Holy Days are over. Best of all, in both seasons, airfare and hotel costs are much lower.
