|(Pictures borrowed from Hurtigruten.)|
Hurtigruten means "the fast route" (Hurtig=fast and ruten=route). You have to remember that when Hurtigruten was established well over hundred years ago, this route along the Norwegian coast actually provided fast transportation of passengers, mail and goods. Nowadays, when compared to for example airline travel, it's not so fast anymore.
And when you pronounce the name, leave out the "g" - Hurti'ruten.
Some of the misspellings are funny, at least for a Norwegian :) I have cut out the list from the blog above:
