I am in the Grove, right by a map marker for an "undiscovered vista." There seems to be nothing special about it except for a nearby balcony. There seems to be no apparent trigger around except for a discussion tree with Nikkyta (which apparently I've known since forever except I'm not even born yet, but that's a matter for a different day.)

So... what am I missing here?

Vistas are often in hard to reach places above the ground, most likely on a roof or on top of a stone formation. To reach it, there should be a more or less obvious path leading to this place, often requiring a few jumps.

The specific marker to trigger a vista is a small light shaft with a vista icon floating above. You just need to be in the light and press F in order to trigger it. The hard part is both locating and reaching the vista itself.

In this specific example, the answer is directly in front of your eyes:

Climb those stairs!

+1. The floating map with a beam of light looks like this –  Jeroen Nov 16 '12 at 11:12

Note also the small up arrow next to the vista symbol on your mini-map - this indicates the vista is above your current location –  Gwen Nov 16 '12 at 13:42
    
@Gwen I only noticed this recently as well and is very useful. It also shows up on skill point markers and (probably) a few other map icons –  Alex Nov 16 '12 at 14:07
    
PoI's and waypoints, harvesting nodes too! –  Gwen Nov 16 '12 at 17:59
