Best Time for Turkey Adventure Travel

Turkey has hot summers and cold winters, sometimes with snow! Therefore spring and autumn, from April to May and from September to mid November, are the ideal times to tour Istanbul and hike and mountain bike in Turkey’s Cappadocia region. The temperatures should be pleasant and mild, with clear skies. If you are more interested in a Mediterranean beach vacation, we still recommend spring and autumn, and also the shoulder months of summer – especially if you’d like to work on your tan!
