Skinnskatteberg is located in the heart of Bergslagen, and lies in close proximity to the Övre Vättern and Nedre Vättern lakes. While there are only 4 800 inhabitants in Skinnskatteberg, the county itself is quite large and provides plenty of wide-open space.  In fact, students at SLU’s Skinnskatteberg campus have access to 3000 hectares of hunting ground.
