About 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. We understand what it is like to travel long term; the highs and the lows and have focused on creating a haven for travellers – a place we would have liked to have stayed at whilst we were travelling.
