Here’s a short video with the directions to each chest.

Aurvangar Wetlands Nornir Chest

To find the first God of War: Raganarok Nornir chest in the Aurvangar Wetlands starting from the docks you need to head towards the fountain. The fountain is in the middle of a bridge and needs to be frozen so that you can cross the bridge. 

To freeze the fountain throw your Leviathan Axe at it. This will freeze it and give you a way over the bridge. As you get over the bridge, you will see another geyser spraying up. Once again through your axe at it to open up the way across. Using your Blades of Chaos, you need to swing over to the next little island.

When you get to the top of this little island, on your left will be the corpse of a dead dwarf. The head of Mimir will give you some history regarding the dwarf. Collect the relic from the corpse. You can now head over to solve the puzzle to unlock the chest.

On the opposite side of the corpse, you will find a small island just below the one you are standing on. The chest is here. Before you can open it though you need to break three pots with runic symbols on them.

 The first one will be on the island with the dwarf next to a tree. The second one will be just below the island to the left when you are facing the chest near a hot spring, and the third one is on the island directly across from the chest. To break each pot just throw your axe at them. Once you have broken them, you can open the chest.

The second chest in the wetlands can be found towards the top. If you take a look at the map near the top you will see a small secluded area cut off from the rest of the lake. You need to enter it by rowing under the gate and crouching. 

Once you are through the dock your boat. You will need to solve the puzzle once again to unlock the chest. Start with the dial on the left. You will have to climb a ledge, and the first dial will be at the top. Through the Leviathan Axe (or any other weapons) at it, till you see the letter N.

The Dragons Beach chest is pretty simple to find. As you dock and jump off the raft you will see the chest directly infront of you. To unlock the chest you need to destory to seals with your axe. The first seal is behind the chest covered by a geyser. Freeze the water with your axe so you can get a clear throw.

Radsvinn’s Rig Nornir Chest

The chest in Radsvinn’s Rig can be found on the left side of the furnace. To unlock it you need to set three lamps on fire using your Blades of Chaos.

You will quickly come up on two barrels. 

Use Atreus to break the barrels, and the second lamp will be behind it. The last lamp to light can be done from on top of the furnace on the right. You can only access it from here because it is fenced in. Through your axe at the pot behind the lamp to cause an explosion and light it. You can now head over and open the chest.

Alberich Island Nornir Chest

The chest on the Alberich Islands can be seen on your right as soon as you enter the island. To unlock the chest, you need to make use of Atreus again. There are three gongs you have to hit that are hidden by obstacles. 

The first one is obstructed by a fence. To get a clear throw at it you need to use Atreus to shoot an arrow at the base of the crane holding the gong. This will cause the gong to drop and give you a clear target for an axe throw.

 Then move straight ahead and you will find number two. Just to the left of the gong are two metal plates. You need to throw your axe at the two metal plates to pull the gong up over the gate. The gong will drop behind a fence again quickly, so be fast on your second throw. 

The final gong is very easy to find. It is situated right above the chest on the right. Throw your axe at it. Once you have hit all of the gongs, you can then open the chest. There is no specific order in which you need to hit the gongs though.
