February in Turkey: Weather etc

Last Updated on May 2, 2019

FEBRUARY (Subat, shoo-BAHT)

Rainy, chilly and cheerless, but there’s skiing onMount Uludağ near Bursa, Mount Erciyes near Kayseri, and Palandöken near ErzurumMore…

In Istanbul and the other big cities, museums may be redoing some of their exhibits, some small hotels may be closed for renovations, but there will be plenty that’s open and good to see and do. And there will be no crowds!

The tourist crowds are light. Hotel prices are good, sights and museums uncrowded.

February is forbiddingly cold, snowy and icy in eastern Turkey, but it’s not a bad month to visit the Southeast, which is chilly now but blazing hot in summer.
