Finding all the Nornir Chests in God Of War Ragnarök isn’t easy, not unless you have a handy guide…

Besides its main storyline, God Of War Ragnarök is filled with side quests, ranging from going on a treasure hunt to spotting all of Odin’s ravens. These smaller adventures usually grant you loot or skills, which can come in handy when facing powerful enemies towards the end of the game. 

You’ll also notice there are some special, sealed chests called Nornir Chests. They contain Idunn Apples and Horns of Blood Mead, which increase your max health and Spartan Rage bars once you collect enough.  

As they’re hidden throughout the realms, it can prove tricky to find all of them, and even then you have to find their matching runes. The runes are usually within close vicinity of each Nornir Chest, but they’re often easy to miss.

All the Nornir Chests in Alfheim 

There are seven Nornir Chests you can track down in the realm of Alfheim. Here’s where you can find them: 

The Strond (x2) 

Found during the Groa’s Secret quest. You’ll be able to see the first Nornir Chest as soon as you enter the Strond. It rewards you with an Idunn Apple. 

The first rune is opposite the Nornir Chest on the cliff edge. Another is past the chest and down to the left. For the third, return to the higher path and go up. After Týr points out the Temple of Light, look down to the left for the last rune. 

The second chest in the Strond cannot be opened until you complete the Forging Destiny quest. After fighting Light Elves for the first time, you’ll lift a stone pillar to go forward. After a bit, you’ll see a Nornir Chest to your right. It rewards you with an Idunn Apple. 

The first rune is on the right of the Nornir Chest. The second is back towards the main path, sitting on some rocks by a tree. The third is behind a rock you can destroy with your Draupnir Spear.
