Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Hiking and Trekking

Major Trails

Cerro Campanario
: beautiful view of the lakes and mountains around - hike it (30 min, departs near the bottom of the lift) or take the ski-lift ($40 pesos: USD$10).
Circuito Chico
- This beautiful 60 km route can be biked or hiked. You can also do it by bus during summer (line 10). If you hike it, take bus 20 towards Llao Llao till "El Muelle".
Cerro Otto
- Viewpoint over the area of Bariloche. Transport there includes in the price of the cable car which cost 70 peso both ways (bus+cable car) or less one way while the other way you can hike or take a mountain bike(9 KM from the city, about 2.5 hours when hiking down).
Cerro Frey
is considered by many as the best 1-2 days trekking in Bariloche. When it's cold enough you can skate in the lake near the refuge. When there's not too much snow you can climb the granite "agujas" (needles) near the refuge which have ways for all levels, or head to Lago Jakob.
Cerro López
- Take the #10 bus to get there and back. In late spring/summer/early autumn there's a trekking trail to the mountain shelter (not as easy as Otto's). It takes about 3 hours to get there and can be quite tiring, but the views from the shelter are impressive.
Cerro Tronador
, visit the black glacier (ventisquero negro), see the Cerro Tronador and a waterfall over an overhanging cliff named Saltillo de las Nalcas, near the village of Pampa Linda.
