There is a network of hiking trails in Arta that is more than one hundred kilometres in length, and the town hall wishes to promote it so as to attract an "ecological" type of tourism that is respectful of a municipal environment that includes some 25 kilometres of coast.

Accordingly, guides in four languages - English, German, Catalan, Spanish - have been published. These provide information about eight different itineraries and are available - at the small cost of fifty cents - from the regional museum or from the artisan centre, Marca Arta, in the old railway station.

Mayor Bartomeu Gili says that this promotion is in response to a call from the working party on tourism quality, which had asked for different proposals that would be attractive to visitors. "We have found that more and more people value the nature routes. Many of them are walkers and cyclists who come to the town to experience this richness of nature."

For each itinerary there is information regarding distance, duration, difficulty, adaptation for bikes and items of heritage. The promotion is aimed at all ages and levels and it includes the Nature Park (Llevant) and the marine reserve. The guide will help visitors to create their own routes and also contains a map highlighting recommended attractions. The itineraries cover the park, the mountains, the hermitage in Betlem, the unspoiled coast, Colonia Sant Pere, the green way (of the abandoned project for the railway line), the Ses Païsses talayotic site and the monastery of Bellpuig.
