After taking up the contract from Leslav head south of your location to where the bog ends. Once you reach there you will come across a fog that affects Geralt's breath. Move past it and push up against the rocks on the cliffside, eventually you will find illusionary rocks, interact with them with the Eye of Nehaleni to unveil a passage leading into a cave system.

After a fight with a regular foglet inside the cave a cutscene will trigger revealing the Ignis Fatuus. After you have done battle and slain it collect your reward and return to take your prize.

For lower leveled players going into the fight it's best to use Axii to stun the creature and run in for a few hits before rushing back to a safe position on the side of the cave, outside of the highlighted area.
