After finding a freeing the Hafgufa in the Song of the Sands Favor in the Burrows, you'll be able to travel to the large desert door located on a platform where the Map is circled above. To reach the platform you'll need to go on the platform's south-western side and find the barrier pictured below.

To break through it, turn around and grapple onto the stature behind you using X. The camera should pan around and prompt you to press X again to break through the barrier. Once you break through, you'll have several light elf enemies to fight before investigating anything on the platform. When you're finished fighting, check out the large elven door that Freya takes note of after the fight. It needs two keys to open.
