Tours in Huancayo & Junin, Peru

In 1995, Dargui Tours opened operation on the Plaza Constitucion and has been a central operator of tours in Huayncayo, Peru and the Junin Region. Located in the Central Highlands, travel to Huancayo, Peru allows for quick access to the mountains and also the the central jungle cities of La Merced and Satipo.


It's a region far off of the tourist map for many visitors to Peru, but with hidden gems throughout the region. From the glaciated Huaytapallana trek, to a tour through the Ocopa Convent, and multiday tours of La Merced and coffee growing regions of the jungle, travel in the Junin Region will give you a taste of Peru off of the tourist circuit. 

Daily flights between Lima and the Jauja Airport, which sits 45 minutes from Huancayo, allow for quick travel to the Junin Region and access to the Central Jungle. Travelers can also arrive to Huancayo by bus or by the seasonal Huancayo train (Ferrocarril Central Andino) --  the second highest train route in the world. 

Because Huancayo is still off of the radar for most tourists, we highly suggest advanced arrangements for a tour in Huancayo. This is especially true for airport transportation from the Jauja Airport. Use our quote form below to get started. 


Dargui Tours offices can be found in 3 locations in Huancayo -
