The Day and Night Cycle is a key gameplay feature in the game Valheim.

Sleeping in a Bed or Dragon bed will skip the night. In worlds with multiple players online, everyone has to be sleeping in a bed.


  • Valheim days are 21 minutes long, with nights being 9 minutes long. A full loop is 30 minutes.
  • The day starts when there's a popup announcing the new day (eg. Day 12).
  • The night starts when the 'You feel cold' announcement pops up when standing outside.
  • When the day starts the player will have to wait 10 minutes and 30 seconds before they are able to go to bed.
  • Packs of the respective biome's hostile mobs spawn frequently at night.
