Kelontekemä is located in a landscape of meadows and high fells, next to the biggest lake in Kittilä, Kelontekemäjärvi, where the fish are plentiful. In summer, the village landscape is aglow with flowery pastures; in winter it is snowy, dark and peaceful. Kelontekemä holds a traditional summer festival every year in the last week of July.
Location: Roughly 48 km southeast of the village of Kittilä.
Population: About 105.
Places of interest: The old Kaitamaa cemetery, a community hall, a barn museum, the islands of Manalaissaari and Saijansaari, boating and ice fishing, the Kumputunturi fell, and a multitude of huts and shelters (for example in Kiiskimukka, Uutosenkumpu, Luusua, Tepsankenttä) for canoeists, hikers and hunters.
