About Us

Ariel view of Steel Horse Colombia.

We had a dream to live a life of adventure and bring our passions of travel, horses, nature and art to life and to do what we love every day.

Avid fans of freedom and travelling on the lesser known paths we searched low and high for the perfect place to base our adventures from. Travelling across India, Europe, South East Asia, and South America opened our eyes to the wonders of the world and when we finally stumbled upon Filandia, a colourful little town at the base of the Andes mountains in Colombia, we knew that we had found the right place.

This little town is rich in history, bursting with culture and is surrounded by some of the most biodiverse nature reserves in the world. We fell madly in love with this paradise and in 2016 bought a 5 acre hacienda horse ranch to use as a base for exploring!

Since then we have been on some truely epic adventures with people from all over the world. We have raced our horses against sports cars from the UK on the top of mountains, ridden up to 4000m to find mysterious, ancient glacial lakes, forged trails through jungles and hiked thtough untouched rivers. Adventurers of all ages, from all backgrounds have joined us on these missions and become friends for life. Why not join us on our next adventure? Lets GO!

Filandia is located in the centre of Colombia, nestled in the hills at an altitude of 1900m. The climate is perfect. We enjoy spring like weather all year round. Our farm is situated in the centre of the coffee district and surrounded on all sides by rolling valleys, coffee farms, lush green pastures, bamboo forests, tropical jungles and hidden rivers.

Located between Bogota, Medellin and Cali, close to Salento, with 2 major airports within a 35 and 50 minute drive. We are very easy to get to by plane, public transport or your own vehicle.

Since opening, word of the farm spread and an unusual mix of travellers, wanderers and adventurers started showing up. People circumnavigating the world in scooters with side cars, army veterans that crossed the darien gap on foot dragging their motorcycles through the treacherous jungle, people walking from Argentina to Alaska, couples on world record attempts and a peculiar English guy travelling from the northern most pub in the world to the Southern most pub in a TVR chimera.

We have subsequently hosted over 4000 guests and our mission is to ensure every single person has a fantastic time. We provide both accomodation and tours for individuals, small and large groups and can also accomodate private functions. Message us to find out more!
