Questions about outdoor activities done partially or entirely between sunset and sunrise.

Night-time outdoor activities are more challenging and are creating a lot of specific issues:

  • tougher navigation
  • decreased visibility range: greater risk of falling or hitting some obstacle
  • possible legal restrictions: some areas may not be available at night
  • increased risk of being victim of anti-robbery actions: being interrogated by police, bitten by guard dog or even shot
  • lower temperatures, increased risk of hypothermia even in summer
  • decreased chance of getting help in case of emergency, even in relatively densely populated areas
