Spring hiking - the best season to hikeSpring in Israel and in this part of the world starts earlier than in Europe or North America.
Spring is the best time for hiking the INT - February* to late April.
Start in Eilat between early February to early March and hike north.
Rain delays are possible as you go north, but it should not prevent you from hiking. Rain is common on
any trail in Europe and the US.
If you start in late April or May it is recommended to start in the north and hike only to Arad.
Once the weather is too hot do not hike in the desert.
* Though February is the coldest month of the year and Spring officially starts on March 21,
climate changes do not skip our area. I'd say that spring starts here by mid February. Don't be surprised
to get days of 25 C or more in mid February definitely in March.
