The Best Time to Do the Nile Cruise

Adesua Emmanuel 10 June

Booking Nile Cruise in Different Seasons


Nile Cruise is available all year round. However, when booking a cruise trip, make sure to check if the weather is suitable to explore the top attractions without any hassle.

In simple words, before making reservations, you should know about the weather and how it can impact your cruising experience.

For instance, between November to March, the temperature is around 20 degrees Celsius, and it is a peak time when people all around the world visit Egypt to celebrate Christmas and New Year.

Moreover, if you want to visit Egypt for cruising when the temperature is manageable, then you can consider visiting it between October to April. During these months, you can make the most of your day tours by seeing iconic sights such as temples of Luxor and the Valley of the Kings.

However, if you are planning to visit Egypt during the summer holidays, i.e., between June and August months, then be ready for the average temperature of over 44C or 100F, especially in Luxor and Aswan. And it's even hotter when you're inside the temples or tombs. Thus it is not recommended to travel during this time.

The Best Time to Do the Nile Cruise


The weather of Egypt remains warm but can be stifling in the hotter months that reach over 100 F between May and September. Therefore, if you can tolerate heat, the time between June and August would be an ideal time to visit the place as this is the most cost-effective season to cruise with fewer tourists around.

The more comfortable months between October and April tend to be more costly and crowded. Christmas and New Year Nile cruises are usually the most expensive and busiest. Overall, you can take your final picks per your preferences and budget.
