RETREAT INFORMATION

We hope you're ready for an action-packed escape on this gorgeous Greek island which is home to the southernmost point in Europe. How exotic! 

Once you've landed in Crete, you'll join the Etu crew for this epic six-day fitness retreat guaranteed to make you feel fit, strong and revived. 

On this fitness holiday, you'll get to try out a little bit of everything from HIIT to circuit sessions and yoga. Whatever your fitness goals, we can guarantee that our expert coaches will help get you there.

Our awesome Etu coaches will be with you to put you through your paces, and you'll join the group on day one to enjoy this retreat as a team. This trip is perfect for solo travellers, as you're guaranteed to make some new mates!

The stunning four-star Iberostar Panorama & Mare is just 50 minutes from Heraklion Airport, and with views to die for, you'll quickly realise why we chose this beauty for our Greek escape!
