There are small ice caves in Solheimajokull and then some icecaves in Skeidararjokull, Svinafellsjokull and Breidamerkurjokull, and also in Kverkfjoll. I don't think you can get coordinates but some travel agencies are taking people to those caves now and most likely until sometimes in April. There is not possible to visit any icecaves in Iceland during summer.

There is no map of ,,ice caves"

And it absolutely not advised to try to visit them without the guidance of a good local glacier guide.

Location and existance of ice caves changes all the time, due to melting of the ice. They can be very dangerous, and people have died when inside a collapsing ice cave.

Here is a tour, made by one of the most experienced local glacier / mountain guide: localguide.is/localguide/Ice_Cave_Tour.html
