Welcome to Steel Horse Colombia

Made For Travellers By Travellers!!!
Life is an adventure and travelling is our passion.

2 Bikers and a rescued street dog travelled South America on Motorcycles, bought a farm in the mountains of central Colombia and opened Steel Horse Hostel.

You won’t find us on booking.com or any of the other common websites as we are fans of adventures and and those who seek authentic experiences a bit further off the well worn track. We rely on word of mouth and the recommendations of travellers and hence have an awesome crowd of people turn up. We plan to keep it this way! If you enjoyed your stay please help us spead the message πŸ™‚

Send us an email steelhorsefilandia@hotmail.com, call or send a WhatsApp message to +57 323 597 8524 and we will be delighted to reserve you a place… And ensure we ourselves are not out exploring! See you soon, Yvette, Paul, Benji and all the animals.


Your journey is our passion and our adventure is to create a haven for our fellow Travellers. We have paused our journey and decided to stay a while to make this a special place for other, like minded people before we move on to the next adventure. Come and Join us!!!

Hello! We are Yvette and Paul, two British motorcycle travellers with two Colombian rescue dogs. After 18 months of touring through South America by motorcycles we stumbled upon Filandia. A beautiful, traditional coffee growing and farming town in the heart of the Colombian Coffee Axis.

We fell in love with the people, the culture, the climate, the scenery, the nature, the food and the way of life. We were captivated by the magic of this place and found that we simply couldn’t leave. In 2016 we moved into Steel Horse Overlander Finca (farm) and warmly invite you to join us.

We know travelling can be tough, so take a break and come here to relax, recharge, meet new friends and laugh at the comedy that often unfolds as we, 2 city workers, try to integrate into farming life in Colombia.

Over the past 18 months we have hosted well over 1000 travellers from all walks of life. All on the quest for adventure and all with different stories to tell.
