Before proceeding with the guide, we want to make it clear that it contains minor spoilers about God of War Ragnarok’s story, so if you haven’t finished the game, you might want to close the article and come back when you’ve finished it.
That being said, the Shrine Grove can be visited in God of War Ragnarok during the plot, although you won’t be able to do much here, and also after the story. We are going to talk about that second visit, which is vital if you want to complete one of the game’s missions.
How to access the Sanctuary Grove in God of War Ragnarok and why you should visit this hidden area
Getting to the Sanctuary Grove is not complicated, but you can skip it if you don’t know how to access it very well. To visit Chaurli again in God of War Ragnarok you must complete the story of the game and once this is done return to Sindri’s house.
When you arrive, hit Ratatösk’s bell and he will give you a bag of Yggdrasil seeds. These allow you to open mystical portals that you have not activated in your travels. Therefore, now return to Midgar.
If you look closely, on the map of the kingdom you will see in the southern part the Sanctuary Grove area that you cannot directly access with the sleigh and wolves. It’s time to activate the portal that appears in black and travel to the location.
There is not much to do here, but you will be able to appreciate the gigantic turtle again, have a conversation with Freya and get one of the flowers necessary to complete the Nine Flowers of the Kingdoms quest, essential to unlock the Platinum trophy.
