100 nights of a lifetime

This 400-page hardcover book—published by National Geographic and Disney Publishing—features after-dark adventures from more than 30 countries. Experiences include:

northern lights

Chase auroras from some of the world's best perches, be it northern lights hunting via dog sled in Norway or catching the elusive southern lights from Tasmania. 


See the stars twinkle across the planet's darkest skies—think: Chile's otherworldly Atacama Desert, Nevada's remote Star Train, or a monastery in the Indian Himalayan region.

twilight safaris

Watch (and hear) the animal kingdom at its most active via after-dark safaris, including night paddles in the Amazon or starlit safaris in Zambia.

night diving

Enjoy one of the most surreal swims of your life—night diving during the Great Barrier Reef's coral spawning—or watch the dance of the mantas on an eco-friendly snorkel in Hawai'i.

local culture

Find awe in Thailand's iconic lantern launches, join a local family for Colombia's annual Day of the Little Candles, or enjoy one of Africa's liveliest night markets in Ghana.

Epic sleeps

Catch Zzzs (or attempt to) on the side of a cliff in Peru, then sleep in a watchtower on the Great Wall of China—or take an alfresco snooze beneath the stars in the Sahara.
