Sollia (Fjordruta) is a hiking lodge along the Vinjefjorden in the municipality of Hemne in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. It is located about 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) west of Vinjeøra.

A hikers’ trail goes steep uphill at first, through woods of spruce and birch, up to barren mountain moorland, interspersed with a few evergreens, mountain birches, rocks, in a heather-moss-lichen-coloured setting. The 3-hour-long moderately difficult hike goes along a marked mountain ridge trail, passing small lakes and streams, a few private cabins, and offering frequent spectacular views of the fjord far below and the impressive surrounding mountain areas. Sollia is one of several small self-service lodges in the Fjordruta hiking trail, operated by KNT, a part of the hikers’ association of the Kristiansund and Nordmøre area.[1]

The Sollia lodge is one of a kind. It overlooks the Vinjefjorden from 310 metres (1,020 ft) up the mountain, giving a scenic view. The small lodge itself, accommodating a maximum of 15-20 hikers, is a beautifully restored (finished in 2003) cow/sheep barn of an old mountain dairy farm with its stone walls intact offering a pleasant overnight stay in candlelit and fireplace-warming evening atmosphere.[2]

From Sollia, hikers can visit other lodges such as Storfiskhytta to the north and Storlisetra to the south (across the fjord) are within easy reach.[3]
