 Get to know Filandia (no more

Filandia is a town in the Quindio department of Colombia. It is west of the Andes Mountains, about 26km north of Armenia. Filandia is most well-known for its “mirador,” or viewing tower, with views out over the Cauca River Valley. This region of Colombia is one of the coffee-growing regions, and Filandia has several plantations as well as some fruit and vegetable growers.

It takes under an hour to climb into the mountains to Finlandia from Armenia; there are regular buses that run this route. It’s best to check and make sure they are scheduled for the day you want to go, otherwise you may find yourself hiring a driver. If you’re coming from Salento, you have to get off the bus at Flores and flag down the next bus. Overall, Colombians are super friendly people that will help you get where you need to go.

There are several small hostels in town. They are all located right in the town centre, and Filandia is a small town, which makes everything super accessible. Hostels here are generally friendly and clean, if not well-equipped. Most offer free breakfast and coffee too - backpacker bonus!

Filandia was inhabited in Pre-Colombian times by the Quinbaya people, but a series of misfortunes led to their demise and Filandia was all but abandoned until the late 19th century when rumours of gold and emerald deposits drew settlers to the area. These settlers planted coffee, which is now the main industry in town. To experience Filandia in allits glory, bike out to Finca Mirador for some quality fresh coffee and coffee talk. Then, on the way back, stop into Doble Cascadas, or Two Waterfalls, for a quick dip in the refreshing mountain water! The Parque de Los Nevados is nearby too, if you want to explore, just check with your hostel to learn about transport or tours.
