My Covid-19 troll-themed treasure hunt

Thomas Dambo is a Danish artist who makes giant trolls sculptures out of recycled wood. He has worked with countries all over the world to build 63 trolls, often in remote places people wouldn’t normally visit. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, he decided to hide his sculptures in the Danish countryside and organise a nationwide treasure hunt for families who can't go on holiday abroad. More info at
