In 2014 two travellers set off on an adventure around South America by motorcycle. After 60,000km and 18 wonderful months of exploring this incredible continent, they came upon a sleepy coffee farming town in the heart of Colombia‘s Andes Mountains. The name of the town is Filandia. Completely by accident they fell in Love with this magical place. They tried to continue on the journey but somehow were swept back, captivated by the magic of this very special place.
After searching high and low they found an old, tired hacienda surrounded by magnificent views of the rolling mountains. After battles with lawyers, contracts and bureaucracy they finally earned the keys to the farm.
Since that day the Steel Horse doors have been open to host travellers, wanderers and adventurers.
The big farm house has now been restored to it‘s former glory and is a welcoming retreat for all those looking for a base to relax, meet interesting people and to explore this incredible part of the world.
Come and join us and find out why this place is so special that we decided to stay.
