Drive from Reykjavik to Vik and back in a day

Is it realistic to drive to Vik and back in a day? We have our own car rental and will be travelling with kids age 7,9, and 12. Plan to have a one hour horseback ride on the way to Vik. Thanks for any input/advice.

Yes, because of the horseback ride, the day will be 2 - 3 hours longer. But the south coast tours are R.vik - Vík - R.vík . Done in about 9 - 12 hours.

If you are doing this in the summer you will have very long days with virtually 24 hour daylight, so it's an easy and enjoyable trip.
