The only way to unlock the chest is to use the Draupnir Spear, which you receive from Brok after making your way to the top of The Forge. When you have it, return to this location, and you will need to find the three runes. The first rune is to the left of the Nornir Chest.

The second rune is also to the left of the Nornir Chest but further back, close to the rocks behind the chest.

The third and final rune will appear closer to the train, between the rocks on the pathway. You will need to throw your Draupnir Spear at these threes, wait until a spear touches all of them, and then cause the spear to explode, hitting them simultaneously. Once these runes have been broken, return to the chest to claim your prize.
