In need of some winter sun?
Planning for a sunny summer holiday this year?

The region around Luxor in Egypt is hot and dry most of the year. Summer in Luxor is hot and sunny. Luxor has an almost perfect winter climate: dry, sunny, and not unpleasantly hot. This all-year sunshine and warmth makes Luxor the perfect holiday destination for sun-seekers! Temperature is usually recorded in the shade - but that's unhelpful in Egypt, where it can be hard to find any shade - and if you're in the desert there's none at all! Fortunately it's a dry heat, so even in summer the heat doesn't sap your energy too much. But you must drink enough water the keep yourself safely hydrated! Sun-screen, sunhat and sunglasses (to combat glare from water, desert sand and pale stone) are also recommended

Efficient air-conditioning in your holiday accommodation will keep you comfortable summer and winter - whatever the weather.

Summer (May - September) averages 32°C. In high summer (June - August) temperatures may exceed 40°C. In spring and winter temperatures remain in the high twenties and thirties. (Scroll down for details)

If you like to do serious walking or mountain biking - or if you simply prefer 'cool' - you should aim for November - April (January daytime temperatures are usually 17°C minimum). Some evenings are cool during spring, autumn and winter.

However, during the 'cool season' a hot khamsin wind sometimes blows in from the Western Desert (usually in April) and may bring a sandstorm with it. It may last for two uncomfortable days. The khamsin can heat the air 20°C in just 2 hours, and sometimes reachs 93mph!

Sometimes, mainly in winter there can be a little morning mist and fog, but it quickly clears as the sun ascends. It's a side-effect of the intense irrigation used by local farmers - as well as creating a verdant landscape it can raise the humidity just enough for beautiful atmospheric effects. At harvest time, stunning atmospheric effects are helped along by the dust of threshing.

NO RAIN!

Local people say there are occasional years when it rains.

But our friend in Luxor, ten year old Mahmoud, has never seen rain!

When rain does fall it's usually out in the desert. The lush green vegetation along the Nile (and around the holiday apartment) is due to natural or artificial watering from the Nile.
